Some of you may remember my friend Heather from her bridal portraits about a year and a half ago. She and her husband Jimmy had their first child, a little girl named Kayleigh, on May 6th. This was a very bittersweet occasion for the family because Heather's mom Theresa died a week later from MS and never got to see her first grandchild. Our visit happened to coincide with her memorial service, and I was very glad that we were able to be here to hear all the great stories and reflections on her life and to say goodbye. I first knew her as my friend's mother, but as I got older, I came to see her as more than that, and admired her example as a wife and mother. She was a regular reader of this blog and left comments often. I know she would have been tickled to see her own granddaughter here.
She will be missed.
