Roses for Susan

After Susan's funeral someone brought up these beautiful roses and a card with an angel on it up to the birthplace and they stayed on the counter for a long long time.

A week later we were amazed at how fresh and bright they still looked.

Here's the full moon rising up over Poet's Seat from the nursery window at work. It was a quiet night. We got to talk about what a wonderful midwife and friend Susan was to each of us. It is difficult to lose someone. I knew she was going to die, but I am surprised by the shock I feel that she is really gone and also some anger, rage even, that someone so important and special could be gone......
