Hi Everyone!
Just a note to say thank you again for all the kindness shown to me and my family with the passing of my mom. Closing one's life is a heart sick ordeal, especially when it is your mom. I am keeping strong with the help of my brother who is here with me. Packing up the little things of her life tears at me and then I cry. She was my best friend, my everyday world, and she will be in my heart for ever.
If you can hug your mom today.
Me and Mom

Honor and integrity in art, in life.


  1. Already hugged her today. My heart is with you, Nicole! Take care!

  2. Lovely picture. I see the resemblance. Funny how things stick in your memory. When I was small I attended Parochial School. My all time favorite priest gave a sermon that reminded us that when a loved one passes, we are not grieving for the loved one that passed, but grieving for ourselves because we miss them so much. Somehow, I always find comfort in that thought.
    xx, Carol

  3. Many many hugs to you. In your heart she will always be and you will her whispers in wind and know her love stays with you.

  4. I am so sorry to hear about your loss Nicole. Please let me know if there's anything I can do.

  5. What a beautiful photo of the two of you. I'm so very sorry for your loss, Nicole.

  6. Nicole, we are here for you always! Love the picture of you and your mom! You know your mom is always with you! xoxoxo

  7. I can totally relate, Christmas without my Mom has a hole in it. Praying for you and your family.

  8. My condolences for your loss, Nicole -- our mothers are so precious and you're right that we need to hug them while we have them.
