Lisa's husband AC passed away last night. If you would like to send a card or letter of sympathy to her, please PM me or any Mod/Admin. for her home address. Thanks you.

Edit to add- It was suggested that it would be a really nice idea if members would send her a flower ATC.
If you could take a little time out of your day, to do this, it would be really great.

If you would like to donate to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in Lisa's husbands name-->

I know, the news is just awful. I hope that a lot of people will send her cards and show their support. I can't imagine what she must be going through right now.

Lisa, I feel so very inadequate at the moment, there is nothing I can do or say to make any of this better for you. Just know that you are loved, and thought of by MANY including me. Prayers for God's strength, wisdom and comfort for you and your family.
many huge hugs,

08-06-2008, 08:38 PM
My heart goes out to you, Lisa...sending hugs and angels and every blessing to you and your family and everyone who is missing AC...big hugs, my friend.

08-07-2008, 12:56 AM
Does anyone know what her favorite flowers are? I'd like to paint them for her...

08-07-2008, 01:00 AM
I don't know what her favorite is, but I know she collects oriental themes. I was thinking of doing orchids or a lotus - those seem oriental to me.

08-07-2008, 01:02 AM
Ooooh, lovely idea!

08-07-2008, 01:07 AM
those are definitely asian. also chrysanthemums, peonies, cherry blossoms, water lilies are also seen in a lot of asian art.

08-07-2008, 02:41 AM
Wow. I am having such a tough time with this card. She is deep in my thoughts. "Prayers" (I don't believe in the traditional way...but....same thing...higher power) go out to her and all of those touched by this. I wish she would post in, and let us know she is alright. At least for the moment.

Has anyone sent her "real" flowers? I am thinking of it.

08-07-2008, 02:46 AM
Extending my heartfelt sympathy to Lisa B and her family on their great loss and sending prayers for needed support.

08-07-2008, 03:49 AM
Oh no! This is so sad! Hugs to you, Lisa!

08-07-2008, 04:43 AM
Does anyone know if she is actually home to receive things...or is she staying somewhere else for the time being?

It is always very difficult to know what to say to someone who has lost that special person who they thought would grow old alongside them. Words at this time seem so insignificant and on occassion crass, however, be assured that they are always said with the hope that someday, somehow, they will give comfort. I along with many others on this site wish you and your family the strength to go on forward from this point in time, not with sadness but with gratitude for the time that you all had together. May your memories never diminish, but may they help you on this day and on the days to come. The best way to remember a person is with smiles and laughter, for I am sure that someone that special to you would never wish to be the cause of tears and grief.
All my heartfelt wishes to you and your family.

08-07-2008, 07:21 AM
Sweet Lisa, warm hugs surround you.

08-07-2008, 08:15 AM
I'm so sorry to hear you lost your hubby, Lisa! May he live on in happy memories!

08-07-2008, 08:57 AM
SATT - she was in Houston, but is returning home today for funeral arrangements, as I understand it.

08-07-2008, 09:10 AM
My heart goes out to her.

08-07-2008, 03:50 PM
I feel so bad for Lisa and family. I keep thinking about her.

I sent a sympathy card and flower ATC today.

She has mentioned on her blog that her nephew is running a marathon for the Leukemia society in ACs honor. Here is the link if anyone is interested. http://4unclebuck.blogspot.com/

I love the shower of flowers idea... What better way to send our love than with beautiful flowers...and what better tribute to a man who dedicated his life to life itself (he was a hospital administrator, I understand) than flowers, the symbol of life and growth and renewal? What a beautiful idea.

08-07-2008, 07:08 PM
Lisa I am so sorry for your loss.

I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

08-07-2008, 07:12 PM
So sorry for your loss, Lisa. I am thinking about you in this sad time.

08-07-2008, 10:27 PM
Great idea. Flowers cards how perfect. There are many mentions of lisa's beloved AC throughout this site. It is a testiment to how loved lisa is here. We can all honor lisa by loving our partners, our husbands and our families.


08-07-2008, 11:02 PM
I am sending out a gift for her tomorrow :).

08-07-2008, 11:19 PM
Aw~Ha....I knew if I kept looking I'd find this....TG! Should have known to look in here first!
Our QueenB is one that loves vivid colors....I hope to help shower her with comfort...sending her the angels too....she told me she beleives in them.

08-10-2008, 01:36 AM
Me too Jean I am going to work on it this week.

08-10-2008, 01:59 AM
Oh Lisa, Im so sorry to hear...I know words cant help but hoping knowing everybody here wishes you strength will warm your heart alittle. Hang in there. "Into the light"(I think its called is a fantastic book for people who have lost someone. It is truely amazing truths and ideas about death. It helped me see things differently. My prayers are with you.

08-10-2008, 02:17 AM
Mine is finished and will mail out on Monday!

08-10-2008, 05:04 AM
Hugs and warm fuzzies Lisa! We're all here for you!

08-10-2008, 12:44 PM
I finally found this site, I knew if I kept look I would find it. Did not have any luck with the search engine. I would love to make Lisa a card would someone please send me her address.

08-10-2008, 12:47 PM
I will be mailing out tomorow. I wish that I could do more like take the whole thing away as if it never happened..I hope yesterday all of us were holding our dear friend up to get through what she had to get through.

We love you lisa.

The one major source of comfort yesterday for me, was knowing that as much as her art community (most of which has never met her IRL) cares for her, her family and church family do infinitly more. Hopefully they were able to find some joy and peace as they celebrated his legacy and his memory in their mourning.

08-10-2008, 08:50 PM
I painted her an atc and sent it out yesterday with a card. What a terrible thing to happen to her.

08-11-2008, 09:05 AM

08-11-2008, 09:53 AM

I don't know you, as I just joined today, but I am so very sorry for your loss. I can't imagine how you must feel. I hope each day gets a little bit easier for you.

08-11-2008, 10:58 AM
Lisa, words can't express how deeply sorry I am for you and your family. It sounds as though your husband was a wonderful man and his legacy lives on with your nephew's run for leukemia. I will hold you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. Celebrate his life as he did. God Bless!

08-11-2008, 06:51 PM
Lisa, I'm so sorry to hear your sad news. Please know we love you and are here for you. Hugs, Maggie

08-11-2008, 06:58 PM
Please continue to send loving energy to lisab throughout the next few days especially. I believe these to be particularly difficult days as the reality settles in.

This morning I mailed off a little something I made for her. I hope it brings her even the slightest bit of comfort.

08-11-2008, 07:06 PM
I sent something off today too.

08-11-2008, 07:56 PM
Lisa, I too am so sorry for your loss. I do believe too and know God is with you and will send His comfort to you...Hugs and prayers. I will also contiune to hold you up in prayer. God be with you, KarenM

Thank you MissIce, it's good to know that someone from this community is there for 'real'. I'm sure that everyone here will join in sending Lisa the warmest hug via you, hon.

08-12-2008, 07:19 AM
I'll be mailing my flower ATC tomorrow. My thoughts are with you Lisa.

08-12-2008, 07:28 AM
I have mailed my flower atc, my thoughts and prayers are with Lisa and her family. Thanks for that message MissIce, give her a hug fom us all.It is good to know she has friends and family around her.

08-12-2008, 11:45 AM
Yes I mimic the above. Thank you for the update Ice as well as being there for our lisa. It is somehow comforting to know that someone from our little artist community is looking over her right there in her own town.

Thank You

08-12-2008, 05:52 PM
I've also been seeking this thread for a few days, and now that I've found it, I'm glad to see so many supporting wishes.

Lisa, I sent a personal message to you as soon as I heard the news, but now that I've found this thread, I will make it my pleasure to send flowers (roses of course) via ATC also.

08-12-2008, 06:58 PM
Thanks for the update! I sent mine on Friday~
