It is hard to say goodbye!

We have all had someone move away.  This might be a childhood friend or a co-worker.  It might be devastating or it might be a good thing.  Or it could be somewhere in between.
How do we say goodbye when we have the chance?  Is it the heartfelt “I’ll miss you” or the empty “I will keep in touch”?  For me I mean it when I say “keep in touch”.  But I am embarrassingly bad about doing just that.
For the past several years I have had the pleasure of working with a young lady who seemed to always have a smile on her face.  Her laughter was contagious.  Her dedication to her job and her family is inspiring.
When I found out she was leaving for a new job I knew that she would be missed.  I wanted a way to express that I would be one who missed her.  So I went to the shop and made these pieces as a goodbye, good luck and remember me.
Bonnie, I wish you had stayed.  However I am a strong believer that a person needs to do what is best for them.  With that, I wish you the very best in your new adventure and all of the ones to come.

The first two are from patterns at Steve Good's site.
