Heavy Heart

Good Monday Morning.

My heart broke this morning finding out one of our blogging hearts passed on yesterday.

Mary from mydogsmygardenandmary blog passed away after battling major health issues. 

Mary worked for many years for corporation located out of the Merchandise Mart here in Chicago.  She enjoyed her career as a meeting planner for this company in hotel sales.  Mary retired and had been living in California.

Waldo

Lili

These two sweet fur babies were Mary's loves.  She would do anything for these two.  They were her constant companions and made her heart full.  My heart breaks for how much these two will miss Mary.


This is a picture of Mary's pride and joy.  Her son Shawn along with his girlfriend Kim.  Oh how Mary loved her son and the sweets visits they had together.

Mary's son also had a beautiful daughter that he gifted Mary.  Mary was so in love with her sweet granddaughter Kelly.  I know they will all miss her deeply.  She was so proud of Kelly and loved all their visits. 


Mary loved her garden area.  Her favorites were her beautiful roses.  Mary had such a way with her beautiful varieties of roses.  The pictures of her garden and all the different varieties of roses looked like they came right out of a magazine.

Good bye sweet friend.  I will never forget our sweet and special time in blogland.  I regret that you will not make your trip to Chicago this fall to meet up but I will always have my memories of our sweet emails back and forth and our sharing of our heart in blogland.

May you rest in peace.  Heaven is now a more beautiful place with you there.

If you could say a prayer for Mary's son and sweet granddaughter and close friends as we all grieve this beautiful lady.

I will Miss you Mary.
xoxo

  18. My heart just breaks for her loved ones (including Lili and Waldo), who are grieving today. Prayers for strength for them in this time, and although it won't be the same, that someone who Lili and Walso already know and love will give them a safe and loving home. I'm sorry Kris for the loss of your sweet friend.

  20. I did not know Mary, nor was I familiar with her blog. I heard about her passing through Nana Diana. She sounded like a wonderful woman. I know how painful it is to lose a blogging friend...I am sorry for those of you who knew her, and of course, for her precious family.

  21. Oh Kris, I'm so sorry to hear that you lost a blogger friend; I never knew her, but all the same, friendships are what hold us all together, and especially with someone with whom you correspond constantly, there is such a special bond. Looking at her sweet dogs, it breaks my heart. Sending you a note of LOVE - thank you for the laughter, fun, joy over simple things, that we share together. Peace to you, dear friend.

  22. Oh, Kris, this really hits hard. Believe it or not, I was thinking of Mary yesterday (the 30th) and was going to email her. She was one of my recipients in my purge, and her story was the most heartwarming of all. I knew she had a setback in spring, and had to have surgery, but was hoping she was on the road to recovery. Thank you for letting me know. Rest in peace, dear Mary.
