Don't want to bring anyone down, but I am sad today.

Last night, a dear woman I had known for twenty years or so died. She was the mother of one of my very closest friends and was basically a part of my chosen family. Someone I spent some holidays with and many days over the years with. A sweet, gentle lady who will be very missed.

It may sound morbid but each year around the holidays I think, will we all be here for next year's holidays? I'm not a kid anymore and therefore most of the people I know are getting on in years. My own mother turned 83 last week.

Anyway, today's blog post is dedicated to Georgette Pagnoni, 1930-2009. Rest in Peace.


  1. Your post was extremely touching, Shawn. Your friend's mother sounded like a truly lovely lady.


  2. Thanks you guys. I appreciate the support. And Barbara, I hope you are feeling better!

  3. Shawn,

    My mom would have loved your rememberance of her. She was and is truly a special woman whom I am so honored to call my mom, Nonna.

    She loved you and I do too


  4. Ok so the sign up didn't let me make an account. Thanks for the kind words for Nonna.

    Love Krista

    P.S. I am in the progression of the facilitation of my beginnngs to read your literations. "Lil C"
