The Last Words

Dear Inspired Art Friends,

This will be probably my last week-end on RedBubble until …. ??
On 12/28, I suffered a mild heart attack which has revealed serious problems to the heart itself and the arteries surrounding it…. Probably because I loved too much … everything, the poor little one could not keep up on its own.
Anyway, it needs help, and I am undergoing a major heart surgery Monday morning and it is apparently life threatening. But I do not believe it : I have so much more to do in this life !!!
So I am optimistic to be back, but I do not know when.
I just wanted you to know that I had an extreme pleasure knowing all of you (the list is too long, I might forget some, so you will all recognize yourself !).
All of our encounters have been interesting, most of them friendly and even one crush – ccchhhttt it is a secret, even her does not know about it.
Even though I did not like too much the “new” RedBubble, the people around iit are an excellent compensation for any kind of deception.
I will not close my account here as I have the firm intention to come back and bother you… However I might need someone to take over my hosting pleasure on Inspired Art group. Only great people there, you will love it !!!
For those who would like to keep in touch, here is my email address :
And please remember, smiles are much more needed now than tears !!!
Tell the ones you love that you do everyday !!!

I wish you all a Happy New Year.

Francis (Artisan de l’Image)

Take as long as you need for your body’s healing, we will still be here when you return. Prayers and hugs on their way….looking forward to seeing you in the New Year!

ps. we have to step down from hosting our Group too, in a few hours…:(
John’s car accident and everything involved in this is the reason.
In different circumstances I would gladly offer my help in hosting, dear Francis.

Francis, thanks for hosting one of the most fun & active groups in RB. Thanks also for constantly encouraging us all. I refuse to believe this is the last time we hear from you… Stay positive!

Hopefully not “The Last Words” Francis. Plenty of people survive heart surgery and so will you, you must have faith in that. I hope the whole experience is not too traumatic and that you make a speedy recovery.

Should you need any help hosting the group I would be more than happy to assist.
