In Memory

I wasn't going to post tonight, but I just found out some terrible news and I can't help but write it out--as it still hasn't hit me yet.

This beautiful, funny, talented woman, Chris Hertel, lost her battle with breast cancer and passed away several days ago. I didn't know Chris well, but her thoughtful and clever comments on this blog always made me laugh and spread a little bit of sunshine. Even from our brief interactions, I can tell what a beautiful person she was.

She will be so very missed. Things just aren't the same without her.


  1. I did not know Chris, but I will pray for her family. Such heartbreaking news.

  2. Thanks for posting this! Chris was such an amazing woman. Miss her already!

  3. She touched so many people in scrapbooking. She will most surely be missed.

  4. I shed a few tear when I learned last week that she had lost her battle with cancer. She and I interacted on one another's blogs from time to time. So sad.

  5. She was such a sweet and kind person. I wore a pink tank top on my first 5K for her today. Miss her still!
