Hi Everyone!
Well I am home again. It feels strange to be here. Mike is happy though and my dog couldn't believe it was really me. LOL I have hundreds of emails and a few orders to get out. Unpack the suit case and a few boxes of things my brother gave to me. I will always cherish the time I had with him, caring for him, and loving him. Even in the last days he made us laugh. I will miss him. I know that he is OK though. No more pain, or suffering and the fact that he is with my sister makes me happy. However, enough is enough!!! Loosing a sister and brother in a 6 month span is all I can take. Vince's son, Nicholas, has gone to live with my other brother, Steve, in Spokane, WA. Please keep Nicholas in your prayers. He will need some tender loving care and some help in knowing how to live around people that are not sick. He is 16, mature in some ways and not in others. His laughter is catching and he loves his video games. A great kid that I wish I had the space to bring him here with me.
And......So life goes on.

Thank you just doesn't seem good enough for the love and caring that all of you have sent my way. I know you will all be blessed.

Honor and Integrity in Life in Art


  1. Welcome Home and remember we are all here for you!


  2. Sometimes life seems like a series of "tests". All we can hope for is to come through these tests with our hearts in tact. My deepest sympathies to you and your whole family.

  3. Yes life does go on. Sometime though it is so hard to believe that when so much hurt is bestowed upon one. We have to be strong no matter what so we try. Glad you are home. Smile Nicole and take deep breaths and thank God for giving you the strengh to go on. Have a great day. Rather, carpe diem!

  4. Welcome home, Nicole. I was away from my family for over a month when my Mom was ill in Florida, so I know what "coming home" feels like. Remember to rest and take care of yourself now and I will keep Nicholas in my prayers.

  5. Hi Nicole,
    You & Nicholas & your family will continue to me in my thoughts.

  6. Glad to hear you are back in the nest - safe and sound.

    You are a remarkable woman and Vince is singing your praises for all to hear!

  7. Welcome home Nicole. Take one day at a time...maybe get those beads out and start creating something wonderful in memory of Vince.

    Thinking of you,

  8. Welcome home Miss Nicole. Of course we will all still keep you and your family in our prayers...our one of us now and we always try to take care of our own...even if its a simple gesture of does count. Sending you huge hugs and hoping you can find peace with his going. Beth
