On Laurel’s 68th birthday

July 5, 2016

This lovely human being, my stepmom Laurel, would have been 68 years old today. She passed away just over 2 years ago. I was going to dedicate my monthly newsletter to her today (since I inadvertently scheduled it for the same day as her birthday) but I became a blubbering mess when I tried to write it.

Instead, I shall post one of my favourite pictures of Laurel, celebrating her birthday at the family cabin she loved so much a few years before she left us.


I miss you terribly, Laurel. Even two years later. My world remains diminished. Lovely, kind-hearted people should never leave … the world is already severely underpopulated by such souls.

Love and light, Laurel.

    That was a lovely remembrance of her. It’s obvious her spirit is very near still.

      That’s a lovely way to think of it, Gina. Thank you.

    Beautiful. I feel exactly the same about my stepdad. I never considered him a step, he was so much more of a dad to me. When he passed a part of my heart died with him. He’d been a part of my life from the time I was 6 or 7 months old.
