Rest in Peace

On Sunday the 23rd my Mother was visiting us from Colorado when she received a phone call from the police back home telling her that her husband had passed away in a motorcycle accident.  I watched as my Mother was told over the phone that her soul mate was dead and it was crushing.   I am getting teary eyed right now writing about it. The top picture with the cross is above where he died. The picture next to it is our escort to the funeral and the bottom picture is the patch his fellow bikers in sobriety made for him and they will sew to their vests.  Doug's funeral was overflowing with people who loved and cared for him and they are having a memorial for him at his AA club house on June 6th.  That is all I can write for now as I am still upset but I wanted to explain why I have been absent from my blog and my etsy and artfire shops.  I bought some new raku clay yesterday (my old clay turned in to a rock) so now that the weather is nice I am going to start rakuing again.  I seems like everyone is rakuing lately!!  Even my husband wants to try his hand at it and he has not played in the mud since college.  Well thanks for stopping by I will post again real soon

Oh thanks Ren. You are a sweetheart. Yes it was very moving to see how many people loved my Mom and Stepdad. Later I will post some pictures of the mountains and Manitou Springs.
