Dear April and Papa . . . with much gratitude
« on: February 08, 2017, 05:09:58 PM »
Dear April and Papa,

You've provided us all with a sweet and personal community that has allowed for the creation of friendships across state and country lines.  Thank you so much for all you've done to keep this "home" up and running, fixing things when needed, and encouraging us along the way.  It's with a mix of gratitude, sadness, and understanding that we'll be saying goodbye on Friday.  The Quilting Haven will be deeply missed.  Please know that all you've done has been so very much appreciated.  I'll continue to keep you in my prayers - for your health, for your comfort, and for your family. 

With much gratitude,
sew cornie

April & Big Papa - I hope you know that we would not be a community of quilters without both of you.  Thank you for hanging in here for as long as you have when we all know that you woulda, shoulda, coulda, done this a long time ago.  You are special to us and I sincerely hope that you are able to take care of you, feel much better, and come back to us in the future...no matter how long it takes.  (((Hugs)))

The appreciation I have for all you've done to make this a friendly welcome place can't really be put in words.  But, I understand the battle you are going through and we all will be keeping your efforts in minds as you take this break from our loved Haven.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart and may this respite allow you to get the healing time you need and deserve.

I really appreciate all that you've put into this Haven to make it what it is. A place where kindness is evident and where friendships have formed "off line" as well as on.  There are other forums, yes, but this one has always had a very homey, non-competitive, come-as-you-are feel to it.  We all understand that you have your limits,April, and some very serious issues to deal with. Please feel complete freedom and peace about your decision to step away from here while you focus on health. You'll be missed. But we will go on elsewhere and will be ever grateful for this place in cyberspace that you created.
