In Loving Memory of Kelly

"Hope is the thing
with Feathers
that perches in the soul
and Sings the tune
without words
and never stops ~ at all"
Emily Dickinson

This was the last quote Kelly had chosen for her blog in 2010 and I wanted to share some photos of her beautiful life with all of you.










Lastly, the winner of the doughnut pan is Angie!  Congratulations, please email me your address so I can get the pan mailed to you ASAP!

Tomorrow, I will have another extra Give-Away up--Kelly's generous nature will continue:-)

    1. She was a very special person and I miss her more than I could ever say, but her son Ari called me today. He made me laugh and said, "Mimi, are you happy now!" Children are so perceptive, XOXO

  14. Kelly is so beautiful. What sweet memories you have of her too short time here with you and her husband and family. There's a blogger...perhaps you know her...Karen of A Scrapbook of Inspiration...who has the most loving philosophy. She says that in times of trouble or stress or loss that one should give a great gift. You certainly are living that philosophy as well.

  16. Kelly and I were classmates at MHC ('94). Althoug we did not know eachother there, I wanted to let you know that she has made an impression on me. I am a mother of a 5 year old and 2 month old (both boys) and I sometimes think about the Kelly I "met" through her blog and writings and it helps me to be more present, more generous with my attention and energy, and more appreciative of this time in my life.

    I am so sorry for your loss and so glad that Kelly's presence is celebrated through your gifts of cooking and generosity.

    Best,

    Gale

    P.S. I recently moved to Redmond and your recipes are wonderful for this weather.

  18. Hello Susan.
    Thanks for your visits and comments to my blog.

    I haven't been following you long enough to know about Kelly. She was your daughter? And she died from cancer? I am so sad for you to sustain such a loss. The little child she is holding is so adorable? Do you care for him now?

    Please forgive me if these questions are too personal to ask you. I just wasn't quite sure what happened.

    Kelly was such an attractive young woman. How tragic to leave this life so young. My heart goes out to you and all your family. Susan

  24. What a sweet tribute to your precious daughter<3 My heart goes out to you in your loss.
    Yesterday my dear friend(since second grade) lost her 28 year-old daughter to ovarian cancer (her little boy will be 2 on Thursday). Her daughter, Megan, was one of the kindest people you would ever want to meet.
