My dear friend Shonna, I am holding you and your family close to my heart now and always. I was thankful to have spent time with your mom (and you) recently when we drove to their beautiful home. I cherish the blanket she made me, and it has helped through my surgery. I am honored to get to work on her quilt tops for you. I love you, my bestie, and I'm honored by your mom's energy and kindness. May her life and memories always be cherished.
