Special Memories Of My Twin - Wordless Wednesday Linky


    
It is not easy to be wordless this week. My friend Eleanor who attended Preparatory school and the final years of high school with my twin and  I sent me this message in an email and it has certainly lifted my spirit:-
" Our precious Lord, Who is keeping Janine safe and secure in Paradise until we eventually join her there, and Who will never stop comforting you, Mrs. Haughton-James and Richard, is the same God Who gave me the privilege of knowing Janine Petite Haughton-James: whenever I think of her (and of you), the words "pure-hearted", "sincere", "genuine", "kind", "gentle", "lady-like", " diligent'", "practical" and "efficient" come to mind."
Anyone who knew Janine will always remember her as a beautiful flower in God's garden"
    
    Welcome to Wordless Wednesday hosted by Clairejustineoxox and Judy H-J's Thoughts where you can link up your Wordless and not so Wordless photo posts. 

          SPECIAL THANKS TO MY SPONSOR  - SEW CRAFTY ANGEL. PLEASE VISIT HER BLOG.
