News About a Blogging Friend ~


Dear Julia, whose blog was Of Petals and Wool, has suffered a loss no parent should ever have to deal with.  In her words ~
 
". . . it would be so good of you to let them (blog friends) know that my daughter Nicole passed away. She was Dr. Nicole Bourque and taught anthropology to PhD students at the university of Glasgow in Scotland. She passed away in her flat (condo)  in bed after she wasn't feeling well for a couple of days. 
 
The accolades keeps pouring in from all who knew her from far and wide, her colleagues, friends and students and others.  She was so loved by everyone. She went over and above the call of duty for her students. She studied cultures and has travelled extensively all over the world.
 
My husband George and youngest daughter Christine, James and Daniel's mother  are in Glasgow looking into settling her personal affairs and effects.  They will ship some of her personal belonging and will have to decide what to do with the artifact that is all over her beautiful home. Everywhere she travelled she always brought back some treasures. On Sept, 27 she flew to Virginia at a conference to do a presentation and had returned on the 4th of October."
 
Please keep Julia and her family in your prayers.
 
Hugs,
Lauren

  11. Yes..."prayer" and lots of it. My Sis lost her daughter aged 33 leaving 3 babies behind and the youngest (less than 3) will not remember her mother. I am still hurting and praying. God Bless this family.

    Peace for all,

  12. Was so sorry to get that news a few days ago, thanks for alerting us. That is not the way things are to work where the child leaves before the parents. My heart goes out to the family.
