Joe and Rhoda, I know you will remember me. I am heartbroken to know that you must bear Tawnie's loss. I had no idea Megan and Tawnie had remained in touch and friends. I remember a vibrant little girl with a quick laugh. Do you remember when she chopped her bangs to nothing in Pre-school? Please know you are all in our thoughts and prayers at this unbearable time of grief. I know what it is to loose a child too. Would like to touch base with you when you are up to it.
Love to you both, Diana

I work in the hospital. Tiny bit of my face is in the background of the one pic. She loved talking with Dylan. Dylan would crack the both of us up. Tawnie introduced me to new music. I introduced her to new books. Even though I was “only” a hospital employee we formed a bond. Balanced each other. Has many many many many laughs together. I miss her. I know she will be missed by a lot of people.
We would go around taking pictures of the sky from the windows. A way to waste time and enjoy the beauty of the world.
