Little Jo,
So sorry to hear about the loss of your dear friend. Last year was a very hard year for me with losing friends. This year will be better. I am thankful you had you sweet cousin and friends with you who were such great help to you. I am glad you are skipping, sipping tea and wearing your raspberry lipstick! I have found a new a shade that used to love and I love once again called "Black Honey"-it is sheer and berry coloured-must send some to you! These photos of you and one of your dear boys are just amazing just like everything that is "Jo". Wishing you all the best my sweet friend. Will meet you for tea and moondancing soon!
Love,merle
