Our dear blogging friend Teresa Kasner has passed away. To all of you who knew her you know how hard this is. She spread love and light to us all. She dedicated her life to her family, friends and to causes that were dear to her. Teresa was the first blogging friend I had when I opened this little blog of mine many years ago. She has been here for years cheering me on just as she has been cheering on all of you Her passion for crochet, beading, painting, nature, justice, environmental preservation and equality have motivated me to be better, to do better. She was such a light in my life, just one text away at anytime. I will miss her so much just as I know you all will. I will miss her passion for life, her beautiful photos, her life on the farm in beautiful Oregon and her love for so many.
It is hard to not justify this loss just like you would any deep friendship you have had even though you have never met. We are all in this crazy world together, and I think blogging friendships make us all more relatable, make us all closer even though we may be thousands of miles apart. We are all friends, trying to support each other the best we can and connecting to each other from worlds away.
So today I am thinking of all of us as we suffer this huge loss. A loss of an amazing woman that meant the world to me. I am thinking of all of you as I send you love because you all mean the world to me as well. Teresa's amazing family, including her husband Dayle, will need all the love and care we can send their way as they travel through this terrible loss.
It will be hard to travel this road of life without dear Teresa, but having known her has made us all better people. Stay safe my friends, once again we have been shown that life is short.
