Lennie’s passing has left me at a loss for words as I am still trying to imagine life without her here…

  29. Oh Patty, I’m so sorry to hear of Lenny’s passing. I wish I had discovered her and her blog. Your tribute is simply beautiful. It’s hard, isn’t it, losing our blog friends. We may — or may not — have ever met them face to face and yet their words, their photos, their stories leave an indelible mark on our lives. I know yours was richer for knowing Lenny and I send you hugs and prayers as you mourn a friend.
