In memory of Barbara Harris.
I considered her my "godmother in blogland".
We met during my first "Blogging By Mail" back in 2006 when I sent her a care package to New Zealand.
Always there with advice, love and frienship.
She was truly special.
Always a nice thought.
Always a word of comfort.
My brother passed away from cancer. On every anniversary, there was a note full of love awaiting me.
When my mother got sick with cancer. She helped me navigate medical terms and ongoing journeys. She made the distance and the worries slowly diminish.
When my grandfather, uncle and cousin passed away this year. She found the strength to come with words of comfort. When I knew too well she was herself fighting her own cancer pains.
A class act.
The most generous woman I have met.
Humanity lost one of its bravest soul.
To her husband, sons, daughter-in-laws and family, I can only assure you that she was loved by thousands of people around the world.
We are strangers to you. To your pain and your day to day minutes and life. But we loved her.
And we have no words to tell you how sad we are for your loss.
Barbara said one day that this photo was one of her favorites of my "non food" pictures. It's entitled "Reaching". I hope it brought her a bit of joy. Even a fragment of happiness.
To Barbara. A true lady.
