Brenda posted about a
great blogger/designer named
and her blog
Sweet Something Designs
Michelle had been undergoing cancer treatments.
But on January 9th, Michelle lost her battle against cancer.
I clicked over to Michelle's blog and started reading about her. She had been fighting cancer for some time, was very honest about her fear, and was an extremely talented designer.
That is when I found...
she lived just a few miles from me.
Her celebration of life services were to be held at a church just down the road from me. For years, I had even been going to her booth in a local antique mall and purchasing some of her beautiful handcrafted designs. Her booth was well known and a local favorite among my friends.
But until January 10th,
I didn't know who she was.
