Fellow HSB blogger, Missey at Heartschooling, passed away yesterday (March 1) shortly after giving birth. PattyCake has been posting updates as they become available. Please pray for the family and the many friends who are shocked and grieving today. They have chosen to name the little girl Melissa after her mother. Missey also had four other children and was active in Ambleside Online and the moderator for the Basically Beechick list serve.
I have also compiled a memorial post on the HSB Company Porch. This will be updated throughout the day as I receive comments and emails. Life is short. Sometimes shorter than we think. Hug your family and tell them you love them.
