Angel Watch

A new Angel has joined the realm of Heaven. Our sweet Blogging friend, Leontien, lost her battle with melanoma yesterday. My thoughts have been on Leontien since reading the news on her Facebook page early this morning. Recalling Leontien's blog posts today brought smiles to my face as I shared stories that Leontien shared with her readers, with my family, yet my heart is heavy. My emotions have taken a roller coaster ride all day. 
I have never met Leontien, yet I feel like I know her well.  I feel like we were best friends. She inspired me.  She made me laugh.  She made me cry. She made me think differently about the world. Isn' it amazing how this can happen?
God bless you, Leontien. You will be remembered by many. I am thankful to have known you.

  6. Damn. I didn't know until I came over to visit you. Thank you for giving such a respectful post of honor for her. She'd be proud. I didn't know her well either, but felt her zest for life through her words. God bless her for being so full of life, until the very end. We should all take notes. A life well lived, even if too brief.
