Sharron Gregory was beloved by all of us on the 12 Kits of Occasions team … her passing at the end of March left each of us with a broken heart. I am joining the 12 Kits team today as we celebrate our wonderful friend.
Sharron and I shared a love of all things winged! Mostly our sweet Monarch butterflies. Her guidance, and knowledge, made Tom and I better caregivers - I'm so sorry that I never had the chance to go tag those fragile wings with her in Kansas! This year, and forever more, I will remember Sharron with each blooming of a Chrysalis in our Butterfly House.
This duo of cards was made from the very first Kit I ever received as a member of this wonderful team. I knew in a minute Sharron [our hostess] and I were destined to be friends! It also prompted our first, of many, phone conversations!
My next card, made from another of Sharron's Kits in April 2017, says it all … even if there isn't a bird or a butterfly - she knew I loved kitties, too!!
Love you, Sharron - I pray you'll find a way to visit - if only on Papillon Wings! I'll be waiting.
Thank you for stopping by today … if you called Sharron your friend, feel free to add your own special memory of her in your comments. I'd love to hear it. Here's a link to the 12 Kits of Occasions post where you'll find all the special ways Sharron touched all of us as members of the 12 Kits team.
What a wonderful tribute to our dear friend. I instantly recognized the supplies on your card as one of Sharron's past kits. I love that you thought to do that Michele, and the sentiment is just perfect. I love this so much and I know Sharron would too. Hold tight to your wonderful memories my friend.
What a beautiful and loving tribute to your friend, Michele. You were lucky to know each other. How lovely for you to use the supplies from kits she created. Your cards are wonderful. Calm and serene for the first and wonderfully playful on the second. Thank you for sharing a piece of your heart today. Hugs!
I am so sad to hear this and I know you'll cherish each memory of her, especially those butterflies! What an awesome tribute!
What a lovely, lovely post Michele and I just LOVE that you showed cards made from Sharron's kits...they really show the type of wonderful and loving to ALL the creatures of this world person that Sharron was! She will be dearly missed and it makes me want to cherish even more the friendships that I do have and hold them even closer to my heart...and that includes you my dear, dear friend! Sending many hugs your way Michele!
This is such a touching tribute to your friend, it brought tears to my eyes. So very sorry for your loss. Didn't know her but she sounds like someone I'd like, too.
Such a sweet tribute, Michele, Jo x
I can see where you and Sharron would become fast friends with your shared interests, Michele. Your thoughtful cards are a wonderful tribute to your friendship. She will be missed terribly by those of us who were fortunate to call her friend through this wonderful community. I'm still shocked that she is gone and I will miss her emails, comments, and cards. It's comforting to know that we all will be thinking of her when we see a butterfly! Take care and be safe! Hugs, Darnell
Every time I see a monarch I think of you and Tom. Now Sharron will be in those thoughts too. What a lovely tribute to our sweet friend. I enjoyed seeing your cards from the first kit she made for you. I still have the paper you used on your second darling card. Sending hugs your way...
Beautiful post Michele! Sharron touched each of us in a different way.. your butterflies - her papillon wings.. a beautiful way to remember her. We were blessed with the time we got to share with her.
Such a heartwarming tribute to your friend, Michele! I am so sorry for your loss, and I have a strong feeling Sharron will make her presence known when you least expect it :)
Thank you for sharing this lovely post and your beautiful cards with us...Hugs, Barb xx
I didn't know Sharron, but I can tell I would have loved her, Michele. She had great taste with her card kits and the butterfly house fascinates me. So sorry for your loss, my friend. Sending extra hugs and prayers tonight.
Simply sweet card and I am sure Sharron would love it. That sentiment is so perfect. Loved reading your wonderful memories of Sharron, it has been so heart warming. Hugs to you!
Michele this is such a wonderful tribute to Sharron and her love of butterflies that you both shared. She would love the cards you created with a 'Sharron' kit, they are beautiful. Love how you ended your post!
Such a beautiful tribute to your friend. I'm sorry that I've never met her but I know she's smiling down on you and the rest of the 12 Kits team.
Such a beautiful and meaningful tribute to Sharron. I enjoyed the 12 kits post as well. There are some people who touch our lives in super special ways. I am so sorry for the loss of your friend... I can certainly see why the most last couple of weeks have been so difficult on top of the state of the world. Your mutual love of winged things will be a gift that forever keeps you connected and put a flutter of comfort in your heart. Hugs, S
What a great tribute to a lost friend, Michele. Your common interests will keep you forever linked.
Michele, this is a beautiful tribute to Sharon. I'm so sorry for your loss. I didn't have a chance to get to know her, but I feel like I now know a little about her from your post. She'll be in your heart.
Big virtual hugs, Hideko xx
A lovely tribute to Sharron, Michele. How wonderful that your paths crossed as a result of this group and, especially, the discovery of your shared interests. Your monarch photo and cards, combined with your from-the-heart words, reveal how deeply she touched your life - and you, hers. I'm truly sorry for your loss, but happy that each butterfly that 'blooms' will be infused with thoughts of her.
What a lovely tribute to Sharron. People come into our lives for reasons that we don't realize until they are gone. It was so nice that you had all these shared interests and how her friendship touched your life. Big hugs Michele!!
I am touched by your memories of Sharon and yes she will be missed, her enthusiam and creativeness in our crafty world was inspiring. Sending hugs your way my friend x
