In Honor of Lisa Lynne

It is with great sadness that I tell you I have received word that a design team sister and a dear friend, Lisa Lynne Wright, suddenly passed away while on vacation here in Tennessee.  I will miss Lisa, as we became fast friends while serving on the Heartfelt Creations Design Team. As it turns out, she and her husband, Joe, were born and raised here in East Tennessee.  I got to meet Lisa about a year ago when she came to Tennessee to visit family.  I always felt we made a connection on that visit and we had become instant friends.  My card this morning is in honor of Lisa.  She was always ready with encouragement and her wonderful smile was infectious.  She loved making the cards for the HC blog and took great pride in her work.  I was always so happy to see each and every card she made.  I looked forward to her every post and she visited my blog each and every time I posted. 

I believe that when we pass, we are carried on in the hearts of those who knew and loved us.  I will carry Lisa in my heart always!
