Do you remember a while back I wrote about my good friend, Nancy, who suddenly passed away… (Story linked here.)
Nancy was my business attorney and a good, good friend. She loved animals – any animal. This woman would twist herself inside-out to help an animal. Truly. She was a guardian of her friends and a guardian of all animals.
I was very shocked and taken aback when I heard that Nancy had died. I mean, she would write on my donkey’s FB page every day. Every Day. Basically, she and I chatted through my donkey – daily.
And then, abruptly, she stopped.
After a week or so, I wrote and called and … finally I emailed her brother to find out what was up.
He told me that Nancy had passed suddenly.
I had a tough time processing it.
What I came up with to heal was “St. Francy”. In the spirit of St. Francis – the patron saint for animals, I donned Nancy, “St. Francy”.
SAINT FRANCY, WATCH OVER ME…
We humans do whatever we can to come to terms with events we do not understand – and for me, I wanted to create a tribute to my friend who was so excellent at protecting others.
Through the grief erupted this ST. FRANCY medal. It is shaped in a heart with angel wings on the front… and the words “WATCH OVER ME” stamped on the back.
It occurred to me that Nancy might like to dangle around the necks of humans, or on the collars/halters/bridles/saddles of animals she had never met but would love no matter… (Nancy especially had a dream of owning a Friesian someday.)
I just thought this little bobble would make Nancy very proud. And, in her own way, she could still contribute to running the Bucket Fund – by offering this token charm. (Nancy loved the Bucket Fund and helped me set up protocols.)
So, here it is! The ST. FRANCY MEDAL – full of love an it benefits the Bucket Fund!
I hope you enjoy this medal as much as I did in making it! The St. Francy medal is full of my heart and soul.
