I know it happened a year ago, but I just found out about it. I knew she was very old, so it wasn't a big surprise, but it was just as sad. I grew up reading her books and from time to time, I still enjoy curling up on the couch and getting lost in the crystal singer, dragon rider, or acorna universe. In the eulogy read by her son, he said that instead of flowers, to give to a charity in her memory. I thought it would be poetic and appropriate to give to PBS, so I donated some credits to the friends of PBS in order to keep the site running. In addition to that, I wanted to give some credits to PBS members, so the first 5 people to message me gets a free credit. I hope you enjoy the book you order with it.

Thank you for your offer. I usually use my credits to order books for our school's library collection.

Blessings,

Liz

I've given away my last credit. I encourage others to donate something to a charity in her memory. Feel free to use this post to list the wonderful things you've done to celebrate her legacy. I think she would like that.
