Oh Rachel...I am sorry! I hold you in my highest thoughts and prayers....

love, kelee

Rachel..this is why I believe that creativity is one of the main ways our prayers are answered and our lives are healed. Your gift of creativity to Melody provided a ritual of completion and transition. Also --for you it outleted your grief into a positive action that literally "wrapped" Melody in evidence that the "Creator" is present within us and also waiting for us to reunite when we leave the physical and become pure spirit again.

You have been a Divine emissary here--a creative missionary---your hands stitching love, memories and promise. Thank-you for sharing the story of the box and your exchange. I am teary with joy and
in awe of enduring love and friendship.

love, kelee

Rachel, I am so very sorry for your loss of such a dear friend. I see that she has four children from 19 to age 6. Oh how sad. I will pray for that family.

I saw the beautiful dress you made for her funeral. It is such a loving thing for you to have done for her.

Bless you Rachel. Kathi
