Fly High and Say Bye

First, indulge me in a little figure skating talk. Brasseur and Eisler, a Canadian pair team, had a daring move called "Fly High and Say Bye". It always brought the crowd to their feet. Wanna see it? Look for it around the 1:10 mark in this video.



Fun, huh? But why take a walk down figure skating memory lane with the "Fly High and Say Bye"? Well, that's not so fun. My family is flying high on a trip to say bye to my Uncle, whose long battle with cancer ended early Saturday morning.

Uncle J, Mom and Aunt M. April 1949.

Bye, Uncle J. I'll miss you teasing me about my knitting. I'll miss "fixing" your coffee just the way you like it. (Black, no sugar) I'll miss comparing medical devices with you. But I'm glad you are in a better place, whole and free from pain.

I hope that you have a safe trip out to the services...and I am very saddened by the news of your loss.
Here's hoping that he is enjoying himself by teasing your knitting and drinking black coffee...but now without worry or pain.
Take care. **hugs to you**

Hi Karen. I am sorry for your loss!
I found an email about my mitten pattern Kolenya today in the spam folder and was a bit hasty when deleting it. I only remember it came from a Karen. You by any chance? If so, please send it again ;-)
