Im so sorry for this day Marie, we really are going to miss you as you've have been a stable part of The Paper Shelter, I do so hope that your health soon improves so that at least you feel able to take part in our Challenges. I am hoping myself to retire by the end of the year but I'm just hoping I can find someone as talented as you have to take over. Enjoy your time with the family and look after yourself. hugs Shirleyxxxxxx
Brilliant post and the cards are outstanding, welcome Vannessa to the DT Leader and I know you will be brilliant at it. hugs Shirleyxxxxx

Dearest Marie,

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your beautiful words! Sharing all these years with you was one of the best things that ever happened to me and to The Paper Shelter. Believe me when I tell you that nothing of this would have been what it is now, if not for you, your passion, your care, and your dedication even through hard times. Of course, you are not just part of a wonderful project but also a dear friend. This is your home and doors will always be open for you! I wish you the best!
