I reached out to Nikki, Natalie’s daughter, late this afternoon—
Since I’m not on facebook, I didn’t know how things were going.
Sadly Nikki just text me that Natalie “went home Monday to be with Jesus”—
Maybe that’s why I’ve seen so many butterflies this past week, flitting about in the yard amongst
the newly budding flowers.
I had a feeling Natalie had transcended this earth.
Natalie loved the Spring and all the new birth taking place in the garden.
She adored her yard and garden.
And she always strongly proclaimed on her blog the joy and confidence she found in our Savior.
Au revoir mon Ami. Je voudrais vous voir bientôt—–
Farewell to the consummate French teacher and life long educator…
I will miss you, Natalie.
