Our hearts are saddened this weekend. As many of you know, the writing community lost a beloved friend, editor, and writer Saturday when Sandie Bricker graduated to heaven.
Sandie was our dear friend here at Seriously Write. She contributed regularly, on the first Monday of the month, encouraging and coaching writers. Many of your hostesses here also knew her as a friend. She is already sorely missed.
I first learned of Sandie when her 2009 book came out with Summerside Press: Love Finds You in Snowball, Arkansas. What an enjoyable and humorous story. Soon after I read, we connected online. Then, I met her in person at an ACFW conference. She was a delightful friend and most recently, a source of personal inspiration to me.
Our hearts, thoughts, and prayers are with Sandie’s family and friends at this time.
Grief is a heavy burden. But it’s made lighter by the love and support of many friends together. I invite you, our readers and friends, to share your thoughts and memories here as we celebrate Sandie’s home-going and hold each other up. Do you have special memories of Sandie you’d like to share? Please do so below.
