To Remember....

I'm headed out to New York today, not for business or a bead dig...but to remember an old friend who passed away in December. Molly, Ryan and I are meeting up in the Big Apple to celebrate the life of a girl we all loved - and considered as close as family. Suzanne was one of Molly's closest friends in high school and moved to New York to experience everything - once, or maybe twice. I think a lot people move to New York City for this reason - to try out something different - I know I did. I wanted to live in a big city, meet strange people and live on the edge. Suzanne moved to New York to live in a 100 year old walk-up building, eat out every night and make a difference in the advertising world. I am nervous and excited about celebrating a life that was cut short - but I know that everyone I see this weekend will have a story to tell about Suzanne and we will all feel just a little bit closer to her for 48 hours. Au revoir my friend....

Kaari, please accept my condolences on the death of your friend. May her memory be a blessing.

If you're able when you come home, I know I'd love to hear a story or two about her.
