Time for Goodbye

The Holly Tree came into being 11 years ago, this coming December. It has seen a lot of hard times and a lot of good times. But the time has come to release it.  The last rough patch did this old Tree in and it has been dying ever since.  It's time to say goodbye to it.

I want to thank all the people who have followed and participated in my life here over the past 11 years.  It's definitely been an unforgettable ride, and I appreciate your contributions to the journey. I've learned a lot from all of you, and the lessons you've taught me will remain with me until the moment I take my last breath.

The website will remain, as will the Photo Gallery.  The website is fairly rudimentary right now, but I do plan on adding some things to it over time.  The Photo Gallery is like a Memory Lane for me, and I visit it quite often. If you visit it, I hope those visual records of my adventures give you a measure of peace and comfort like they give me.

A few years ago, I learned the hard way to be very careful about who I allow to get close to me. That lesson is the reason this old Tree has been dying, and why my personal life has become private, with only a very select few invited to share it with me. In fairness to everyone, I have to be honest and tell you I have no intention of changing this.

Thank you for being part of my journey for the past 11 years. It's been a hell of a ride, an interesting adventure, and an unforgettable path to walk.

So glad I have been part of your journey the last few years. Even though I haven't known you for the past 11 years I feel like we are kindred spirits and have known each other forever. Love you my Holly friend.

Hey sis, thanks for the great comments... unfortunately when I approved them, THEY EVAPORATED... I did read them before that so at least I got to see them....

I will be missing you at Bravenet, it was like you were one of the fixtures I could go to to feel a part of. Guess all things change but it still makes me sad. I keep my site up in case someone wants to contact me I hope we can still contact you here as well. You have touched many lives and I am sure there will be many more. Love you bunches, keep in touch
