this lo is about a dear 'friend' (les) whom i have always admired.

'from the moment'

a lil bit of the detail (stamped wings from layer's of color)

the journaling reads: ...from the moment when we first met ~ you held my hand ~ you lifted me up ~ you ~ les ~ a 'gentle' man ~ a man that i will never forget ~ a man that had a huge impact on my life ~ who taught me...about life ~ who stuck with me through my roughest of times ~ who just let me 'be me ~ who would let me cry my cries and dance all my dances ~ who taught me how to be gentle ~ and about unconditional love ~ whotaught me about laughter and choices ~ and about the simple things in life ~ how to smell a rose and see beyond the colors ~ who walked beside me ~ a man who shared his inner most secrets and someone i could confide in ~ a man ~ a 'gentle' man...a true example of friendship ~ and compassion! someone who always 'took the time' for me ~ a true friend! and even though i haven't seen nor heard your voice in many years ~ your gentle voice ~ or wonder if the angels have taken you to the place you deserve ~ please know that your dedication, time and love...will always hold a special place in my heart ~ thank you for being you ~ thank you for teaching me, loving me and allowing me to be me...and know too, that i have and always will treasure our times spent together and lessons learned from the moment you stepped into my life! thank you my friend ~ thank you!
with sincere love and appreciation,
