    Hi all,
    We have just learned that Cajunbelle (aka Sharon Bowlin), a very long time GardenStew member is in Hospice care. She has her family and favorite music with her and is as comfortable as possible.

    Whether you know her or not I am sure that her family would be comforted by prayers, good thoughts or a simple "thank you for a life well lived" offered up in her name.

    Thanks,
    Toni

    So very sad to hear about Cajunbelle's condition. She is one of the original active posters here on GardenStew with a speciality for daylilies. I will be keeping her in my thoughts today Toni, thanks for informing us.

    Cajunbelle was already an active member here when I discovered Gardenstew. She was such a wealth of knowledge and so friendly and probably one of the reasons I joined.
    Her family had been through a lot ... they were hard hit during Hurricane Katrina. She is a hard worker, and always saw the good in everyone, and would give the shirt off her back for someone in need. Prayers and good thoughts to Cajunbelle and her family :heart:

    Sharon was a real friend to many here even although we never actually met her. She will always be remembered. Our thoughts are with her and her family.

    Sadly, Cajunbelle lost her battle with cancer yesterday.
