I am So sad.............my friend of many years, Vickie Enkoff, has just passed away.
Alot of you know her from her business, Chaos Poste. She was a wonderful, giving person.
She has not been in good health for a while, but this happened just way too fast.
It hasn't totally hit me yet, I feel sort of zombie-like. She was taken to the hospital last night and I received a call late last night from her good friend and mine, Pam Bell. I hardly slept.
Pam and I have spoke multiple times today, she has kept me up to date on all the details.
I was trying to get a bit of rest, and the phone rang and it was her telling me she had just passed away.
It just doesn't seem like this is real.
Every month, Vickie opened her home to some of us in the area to go socialize and do art. Each month they did something different. I had gone a few times and loved it-I wish I could have gone more. She was SO hospitable and shared her supplies. Despite her health problems she was always SO upbeat and positive. I think her business and the art group was what kept her going. She was truly an amazing woman, and will be sorely missed. I will miss her sweet, upbeat comments. I will miss her emails. I will miss the art group, even though I was not able to go often.
Because I just took Pam Bell's stamp line and the Lucid Dreams stamp line, I had alot of emails last week with Vickie. Lots of things were said and we talked about her health, how she was feeling, etc. She said she was not feeling bad, and that she actually had more energy than she had in a while since she was put on Oxygen recently. She wanted to do things-go outside for walks, etc. Despite how she felt, she continued to work, and to work hard.
My gosh what a huge loss to the stamping community.
