Just another WordPress site



Notes in the Night began as a folder that sat quietly on my computer desktop after the sudden death of Frank Thompson in March, 2014. I simply could not imagine life without Frank – my husband, best friend and life companion. So, night after sleepless night, I opened the folder and jotted notes in my journal or copied relevant poems sent by friends. I collected quotes about life and death and grief and placed them there. Very soon my Notes also included conversations with Frank.

This website is now that folder and I invite you to look around.
