THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH - I AM SPEECHLESS!
« on: December 08, 2008, 09:26:18 am »
OMG y'all - I was shocked, to say the least when I opened the mail today.  Words can not fully express how touched I am.  To those responsible for the incredible portrait of Ellie "thank you" doesn't seem to say enough. My empty heart has been filled with your kindness, compassion, and love for my sweet girl.

It is difficult for  me to write through the tears, but I want you all to know how much you mean to me and how grateful I am for each of you...  those responsible for immortalizing my girl with this amazing portrait.. those who supported Ellie and me through kind words and prayers... and those who privately thought about us during this most difficult time.

And to Rebekah (DogHealer)... what can I say - your talent is unsurpassed...  you took my favorite photo of Ellie and captured her beauty and essence perfectly - I am truly speechless and thank you with all my heart.

It is lovely.  It's a great way for you to remember her. I wish someone would have told me they were doing this so I could have contributed.

It came out beautiful  :) I keep my portrait of Zoey at the top of my stairs, so I see her several times a day, and I can stop and think of all the beautiful times we had together. I hope you are able to do the same :)

That's a gorgeous remembrance of Ellie for you.  She is a very special girl and so are you.

Beautiful portrait of Ellie. Rebekah is truly blessed with her talent. She captures the soul of our beloved friends in a way no photo could. I'm so very glad you like it and selfishly happy I could be a part of it.
