Ladelle's Hydrangea

I am in a very pensive mood today because I lost a dear friend over the weekend.  I cherish the times of laughing till we cried,  phone calls for a hint to solve the day's puzzle, lunches at the diner,  her listening and propping me up through times of  misery, and the years of working together.  She was strong and giving, and always  loyal.    Years ago her husband, Carl, gave me several cuttings from the lovely blue hydrangea by their back door.  I rooted a piece of it 5 years ago when we moved, and now I will root another cutting to establish it in the memory garden for Ladelle.  I'll miss you, Ladelle, but hold your spirit near.

Two of my best friends have cancer and I'm not looking forward to losing them. Condolences to you and her family. I'm glad you have the hydrangea for the memories.
