Joan Champion ~ A Rare Bloom

This past weekend,
we attended the memorial service
for our dear friend Joan Champion who
passed on March 9, 2008.

Joan was a rare bloom...
None could resist her laughter and giggles,
or the light in her eyes
that would inspire you to see through the impossible...
She was an amazing artist,
watercolor being her favorite medium,
but she loved trying any thing that would bring forth
her creativity...
An amazing cook,
we enjoyed many a meal together,
and danced and walked many labyrinths,
as well as building a few!
For Joan was a hub of activity,
with family, friends, art, labyrinths, and was instrumental
in the dowsing community...
At the service, children, grandchildren, and friends
recalled all the ways that she touched people,
near and far,
but it was Alex,
Joan's husband and our friend,
who brought tears to my eyes
with his beautiful words celebrating
the life of his love and best friend companion...

Joan we will miss you greatly,
but will look for you in every bloom of beauty...
