In loving memory of Nancy Mendoza

On Saturday I received the news that a friend whom I have known since junior high, died after battling cancer for the past couple of years. These past couple of months were the worst for she was on morpheme to alleviate the pain. It breaks my heart because she leaves behind 4 beautiful young children and a grieving husband.  Death comes like a thief and we should be ready for it.

I was feeling really sad and the first thing that came to my mind was, "how can I help?" After talking to a friend of mine who also knew Nancy, we decided to make a necklace in her memory and sell it to help the family with funeral costs. In less than 24 hours we almost sold out of the necklaces!!! There are many more people wanting to order. the cool thing is that I had a few friends come help to make more. It was quite exciting to see the response of friends from high school. I have placed the necklace on my Etsy account

I ran out of the silver ribbon and we invaded many Micheal's stores and were able to get some more...they are not the same, but it will do. I guess this is a good problem to have. I hope that we are able to get enough donations as well to cover what the family needs.
