"October Gold - 10-11-2007 Last Year"_______________Sold, but click to see it big, anyway!
I just had to post this one, even though it is sold. The sunset looked exactly like this a couple of days ago, and I remembered painting this one exactly a year ago.
Our first year away from the farm has been a very LONG one...but what I remember MOST about this date,
Oct. 8 is the death of my brother in law, Doug Strauss. He was married to my sister, Sam, and got sick with MS shortly after they were married. She loved him and took great care of him, even when he got too sick to talk or walk and could offer her nothing....I heard that true love is what you "DO", not what you"feel"...Sam loved Doug like this and became my hero, but was suddenly killed in a plane crash, so she left Doug to ME!...and my family. My kids and I took care of Doug till he died two years after Sam. These were tough years, but some of the best years of my life...when things were boiled down to the simplest elements. We got to see Who was really there for us in hard times and who wasn't ;)
