My very dear friend CK, one of the friends I don't speak to often enough, is in the early phases of a terrible and very tragic time in her life- the death of her mother ("Momma").
CK's mother left too soon- too soon for CK and her sister, that is for sure. Her loss will be felt by those who have been touched by the generosity and warmth that CK has for so many people. By extension, we'll all miss Momma.
CK is one of the best and brightest marketing bloggers around, as well as a fantastic person and friend. She does lots of great things for the community of bloggers and gives so much without thought of compensation. She's a true gem and friend.
Please join me in wishing CK and her family the very best during this very, very trying time in their lives. I know that the words "God moves in mysterious ways" are very shallow comfort during this time, but one has to hope and believe that there is some reason for this loss of somebody who is so loved.
CK, my friend, my thoughts, prayers and love are with you and your family. I pray for Momma's peace and that she knows just how loved she is and how great a person you are.
