I wrote the post below ("Fridays with Bre") yesterday morning and auto-scheduled it to publish today. But I felt it necessary to post again this morning, and ask each of you to pray for Lisa Roswell and her family. I am heartbroken.

(February 28, 2011) Multiple rescue agencies are currently searching the Huron River for Lisa Roswell, 51, of North Fairfield. Norwalk Fire Captain Don Helton says Roswell was swept away in flood waters as she drove to work on Monday. www.fox8.com

Lisa is a proud mother and lovely friend, and talented designer of The Primitive Needle.

ETA: Her body was found this morning. I pray for peace and healing for her family, whom she loved so much.

    I just can’t believe such a lovely, vibrant lady is no longer with us in person. She’ll always be with us through her fabulous, whimsical designs. I had the good fortune to meet her at the Nashville and St. Charles markets and found her so friendly and happy in what she was doing. My prayers and condolences go out to those who knew and loved her best. She’s not far away.

    A dear friend of mine stitched Lis’s Witches Hallow last fall, the last of her stitching, she passed away shortly after it was finished, She was there to welcome Lisa into heaven, God rest their souls.
