A Terrible Loss

Our CCEE teammate, Charlene Merrick (aka LilLuvsStampin) passed away after a battle with liver and brain cancer.  She was the sweetest woman ...... gentle, kind, and full of good humor.  We will miss her terribly.  Julia Aston and I were to get together with her two summers ago when she was in our area, but the night before she was rushed to the hospital, and had her gall bladder removed.  She went home to recuperate.  We kept in touch by internet, and when she was diagnosed with cancer, we sent her cards of cheer every week.  I cased a card of hers to send to her family to let them know how much I personally cared about her.


The only blessing is that she is now at peace and the pain and suffering she was enduring is done.  Remembering you with love, dear friend.
