Today at my workplace, we learned that we lost a dear friend over the weekend. Her loss has many of us stunned, saddened, and realizing how deeply her gentle spirit and easy smile influenced us for the better. It’s left me speechless. So, rather than words, I offer a few photos I recently took in our beautiful rose garden here in Portland’s Washington Park as a remembrance of her. Nan, these are for you.
This rose’s delicate beauty speaks to me of the light that Nan brought to those in her everyday life.
