Default Sad News

We lost a dear Splitcoatstamper friend; buggainok. Her daughter said she died peacefully in her sleep last night. Annette was diagnosed with inoperable and very advanced lung cancer only a month ago. I will miss her comments in the forum and all the good advice she always gave.

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear that. I always liked her avatar-- I think one of her grandkids must have drawn it. It was cute.

This is so sad to read. She was such a lovely part of this community. My thoughts and sympathies to her friends and family.
The only other thing I can say is when it comes down to it, that is the best possible way of our lives ending, and we would all hope to be so fortunate to pass peacefully in our sleep.

Sad news, indeed... She is, as others have said, the kindest and warmest of souls. I am sure that she is blessing others with that sweet spirit wherever she may be now! Her avatar was, indeed, drawn by one of her grandkids - the grandson that dubbed her "Bugga". We had a conversation about it once because one of my granddaughters calls me "Binga". Her grandson is in his twenties now, and still calls her Bugga. These are the sweet memories that keep our loved ones close in our hearts...

Oh....I am sad to hear this She was a lovely human being. I will miss her. She was very generous with technique advice. It is a loss for the SCS community.

She made beautiful cards for her family that I bet now they will cherish-

This is her gallery for people to see....

Very sad to read this. Annette was such an active part of the forums as well as sharing in the gallery. I had wondered if we might ever meet as I'm from OK and travel in that area when possible. It hasn't been long at all since she shared her difficult diagnosis.

Tell your dear ones, family and friends, of your heartfelt feelings when you get the chance. Share that {{{huggg}}} as well. Tomorrow is not a guarantee, m'friends.

Prayers for Annette's family and dear ones.

What sad news....

Annette was so sweet. She and I had exchanged PM's over the years; one of her grandsons is about the same age as my DS and both boys are on the spectrum for autism.


We have lost a gentle and caring soul.....my heart hurts today

Sending heartfelt condolences to her family and loved ones.

Annette had such a generous heart! She once sent me an envelope punch board and told me she enjoyed how I was encouraging everyone about patiently waiting for their,s, that she didn't want me waiting anymore. She said when the one i ordered finally arrived I should either keep the one she sent me or gift it, which I did. I'm so saddened to hear she has passed.
