Dear Trina ...  I thought your paintings were absolutely beautiful and very different.  I have seen similar artists over on our Islands from Vancouver, B.C., and I am telling you the truth when I say that your paintings are just as good and I'd take a chance on selling them.  Don't put yourself down!  I think the paintings would sell.  Don't forget to always sign your paintings!  I have my paintings and other art work packed away at the present time, but going through things now to make room to bring it all in from the garage among other things and I'll be sure to leave a picture of here for you.

It's to bad the 4 of us didn't meet as I'm sure we would have really gotten along well.  Ernie was very tall, intelligent, but a gentle giant and I was always so proud of him.  He loved to laugh like I do and also had a good sense of humor although I will admit we each had our own sense of humor.  LOL  As you say it's just basic good manners to bring something to someone's house even if it's a bottle of wine or a dessert one could make.  It' simply the gesture.

It is my pleasure to be here for you and anyone else who needs me, but I'm not perfect so every so often I come on here to get some excellent advice from all my angels.

I hope today is a good one for you Trina.

Dear Deborah P ...  I will be praying and thinking of you today and wishing you only good memories.  What a wonderful idea to plant that Mimosa tree.  I know Greg will be there with you smiling away.

Dear Marsha,

You are giving me too much credit calling me an artist! I am just an amateur and a beginner. I missed Alaska and Joseph and my life together there that I wanted to paint Alaska landscapes as a way to comfort myself. Here are a couple of my Alaska landscapes. Maybe you, too, will share your paintings with us?

You are always very kind and considerate. When Joseph was alive, we always hosted several parties every year for our friends and we would go all out to make our parties a success and to make our guests feel welcomed. I would do the and Joseph would do the grilling and mix cocktails. Such happy memories. And like you, when we got invited, we always asked what to bring and for how many. Just basic good manners, as you say. Unfortunately, not everyone is like that.  

Thank you for always being there for me and the rest of us!

Hugs, Trina

Dear Charles,

Yes, me too, I laughed at your funny story with your cousin who brought a bagful of raw vegetables as her contribution to the big, family gathering. It makes you wonder why people are so clueless! It's always good to hear from you!

Hugs, Trina

Dear Deborah Peck,

I'll be holding you in my thoughts and prayers tomorrow as you face your beloved Greg's first birthday in heaven tomorrow. Sending you healing thoughts. Planting the mimosa tree is a great way to celebrate Greg. Hope it brings you comfort for many years to come.

Hugs, Trina
