use of photo
Dear Storm,

My oratorio "°mhetens tre"/"tree of tenderness" based on poems by Gunvor Hofmo will be released 25 November this year. Can I have the permission to use your photo of her in the cover leaflet?

Best regards

Re: Kirsten Flagstad
Dear Storm:

Enjoyed your biography on the GREAT Kirsten Flagstad. However, I noticed two errors. You mentioned in the bio that her recordings date from 1913 to 1915. Actually her first records were made a few months after her debut (December 12, 1913, and her final album was "Songs From Norway" which was recorded by Decca/London records in early January of 1959. So, the recording dates should read 1914-1959.

Thank you....

Randy Sills, perhaps the biggest Flagstad fan in the world today. What a great organ of a voice. It will never be equaled, let alone surpassed.

I have visited a number of your graves and was amazed at that beautiful headstones that they have in Norway, they are actual large stones ! The natural stones are at more with the earth, I wish we were allowed such stones in Australia.

International Wargraves Photography Project
RE: Tonsberg Old Cemetery, Norway
Hi Lilli,

Nice photos. Many thanks for adding them and recognizing more of The Fallen. Wife wife is Swedish and we will be moving to Sweden in summer 2012. I hope to see a lot of Norway afterwards.

In the meantime, a technique I use is to photograph stones with flowers "as is", or how someone standing in front of the headstones would first see it. I always carry an umbrella and then put the umbrella between the flowers and the stone, pull down slightly, and photograph the inscription. I crop out the umbrella later and add both versions of the stones.

Please continue photographing headstones in your area and I will keep an interested eye on your progress. I am sure there will be plenty for both of us to do in this area.

Prayer Request
Storm....would you please keep my little boy, Connor, in your prayers Friday morning. He is having surgery to lengthen both Achilles tendons and of course we are all very stressed out and worried. He's only 4 and will have to be in full leg casts for 6 weeks afterward. He's a VERY active little boy so I think it will really bum him out to not be able to run and play with his brother and sisters.

Thank you so much!

Hadn't heard from you in a while. Hope all is well. We got our first big snow last night with more on the way. I sent a message to your email a while ago, not sure if you got it or not. Just thought I would say Hello, Merry Christmas, and thank you for being a friend : )

Just passing through
was thinking of you today, and the kinds words you have left. I hope you are doing well. Getting ready to take my daughter trick or treating this weekend. I think Jacob would have liked Halloween the most. One of his favorite activities was dressing up. Thank you for all of your support and for just being you!

RE: Just a note
Hello Lilli,

I have just received your very kind note and just want to say thank you for stopping by to visit our Alex and for pouring words of that encouraged me this day.

As far as strength to get through something like this, I can't take credit for that, God has been with us every step of the way.

Again, thank you for stopping by and please know that your words have lifted my spirt this morning.

RE: Dearest Amber

You are one of the kindest people I have never met. I hope you really do realize how much all of the words of encouragement mean. It is only the little things that I manage to appreciate these days. And words like that from someone who has no reason to care other than it is who and how you are, mean more than you will ever know. I have also met a friend from New York on Facebook, and the 2 of you check on me more than my own friends do, and they live within miles. I know life is busy and we don't always have time to do the things we should, I would like to thank you for making time to be there for me. You are an awesome person.

Still strugling, but hanging in there,
With much love,
Amber : )

Valencia Asia Angel of Mine 🎄
RE: Dearest Yolanda
I love it!! You have no idea how your words have touched me, wish you could have known her. She had inner beauty as well, she was so compassionate when it came to children. She adored her baby. A neighbor once told me she recalled how she would see my Valencia with little Milan in the front yard always playing with her and could see the love she had for Milan. I will never forget that. Even towards the end, she gave me a hard time leaving the baby with me. Of course, I wish nothing more than to have Valencia, but that can never be. If she hadn't, I could have lost them both. I'm both thankful and blessed that I still have a part of my daughter. You created such a lovely token of her, thank you. Yes seeing the picture made me cry but good tears. Bless you always and once again I thank you. I'm also blessed with you and so many friends here on this site

RE: Me again
Who needs new or clever, when your words are thoughtful and from the heart. Jacob was an amazing boy, and I thank you for seeing that. I am sad now for all of the people in the world that didn't get a chance to be touched by him the way we were. Stay in touch : )

Thank You for the kind words left for my son. He went from a healthy little boy to being 4 days time. So shocking, the way we lost him, that the compassion from loved ones and complete strangers alike; means more than you can know.

RE: Baby without a stone
Thank you so much for wanting to help. I posted new on her page, My friend that I mentioned is an Undertaker, she is also a cousin. We haven't gotten as far as cost. We are still trying to track down info on her. Check her page for the info. I will not let her fade away. It would just break my heart. I am thinking seriously about calling the newspaper, but trying to stay calm about this. I really would like to find her name first before the stone. If I should need help, I will let you know. I can't expect my cousin and friend to do it for nothing.
Thanks for your offer. May you life always be blessed.

Hi Storm
When I saw Ida Sophie's memorial it touched my heart. Wanting to remember where she was I put her in my daughters list. Later I will make a babies list for her and other babies. Thank you for your message and tokens you left for my love ones, Hugs, Jessamine

Holiday Greetings
Hiya, Lilli and Havard -

Thank you for remembering my mom and brother, it means a lot to me!

Igor was ADORABLE, who couldn't love him? And we know with no doubt he'll be waiting for us at the end of life's journey. At least, my Bible says that lions will lie down with mention of Jesus returning to earth with His Saints on bicycles...

God grant you peace and happiness at Christmas, and I wish you a happy and safe 2008!
