Years ago, when many of us were blogging all the time, we met so many wonderful people who had our same likes & hobbies: Baking, Decorating, Painting, Writing, Knitting, Photography, Tea Time, etc. etc.

And we shared happy & heartbreaking incidents..... 

Some of you may already know this as I do because of reading about it on Facebook.
Our dear friend, Kathy Matthews' husband passed away
in his sleep either last night or the night before.

Oregon Gifts of Comfort and Joy: 
The Online Diary of a Central Oregon Grandmother

Kathy hasn't posted on her blog in FOUR years,
so I don't even know if she'll be looking on here,
 but I wanted to share the sad news in case any others wanted to reach out to her.

They just had Thanksgiving together....but now won't share Christmas. Truly sad....
She always said her husband, Cary, was her love and best friend.


  1. How sad! I don't know Kathy, but want to extend my sympathies all the same. My own father passed suddenly on December 6. Although that was 1981, our holidays were never quite the same.

  2. I did not know this blogger, but I did know you. And I miss the blogging days of old when we communicated regularly. I miss YOU!!

  3. I am very sorry to read this. I didn't know Kathy, but losing your friend and lover is always awful.

  4. My condolences to Kathy. My sympathy to those who know Kathy and feel for her grief.


I'm still getting quite a few spam comments that are Anonymous, so I'm trying "User with Google Accounts." If anyone tries to comment that I know, and it won't let you, send me an email, okay? Thanks so much.
