Gay Groff Gillespie, My Dear Old Friend, Has Passed

This morning, Gay passed away into that dimension we are all destined to one day. My heart is heavy, for she was a very dear friend in grade school, and we continued to be friends throughout our lives.

Pictured above is Gay at one of our annual Christmas luncheons with many of our mutual chums. Pictured below is sweet, Gay at my house one recent Christmas.

I'm sorry I have no pictures of her when she was a gorgeous model for both Jantzen and White Stag. Of course, she remained gorgeous for the duration. She was a mere 63.

My heart goes out to her dear husband, their two sons and of course the rest of their extended families.

Here's to you, dear one, cheers!

At last I finished creating my Netty LaCroix elephant! I'm sure you all know what it's like to have numerous projects just hanging around. Well, this elephant has been on a back burner for a long time, and at last I finished him. Of course, I did have to do my own rendition of Netty's design. And I so love hers, but I don't copy other people; just borrow for inspiration and truly credit the originator. Not patting myself on the back much, am I? Well, it's just that I'm scrupulous and have to give credit where credit's due. Just have to.

Enjoy seeing my elephant who has no name, yet.

"The March wind roars
Like a lion in the sky,
And makes us shiver
As he passes by.
When winds are soft,
And the days are warm and clear,
Just like a gentle lamb,
Then spring is here."
