Tribute to Joanne Grzelak

It was with deep sadness that we learned of Joanne's passing  Joanne was a member of a couple challenge blogs and her cards were always outstanding!  I am privileged to be a member of the CCEE Stampers group as she was....thanks to her!

I met Joanne as a cyber friend on splitcoaststampers more years ago than I can even remember.  She was one of the most gracious, kind people I have had the privilege to cyber-meet.  We had talked on the phone several times and the friendship just grew and grew.  She will be sadly missed!

Joanne loved the ocean and always looked forward to her annual vacation trips!  She was a teacher and loved children.  Therefore, this little boy sadly tracing a farewell to Joanne along the ocean shore seems to characterize Joanne to me.  The sentiment was carefully chosen as it says exactly what I think..…."It's had to forget Someone who gave you so much to remember" ….indeed Joanne can never be forgotten! 

Rest in Peace, dear friend.....until we meet again!

Please check out the beautiful tributes others have made to Joanne and join in if you feel so moved:
