A Very Special Jacket

It all began with this!!
This is Mary's jacket she loved so much, I had it made into my Ring Bearer Pillow for my wedding. It is one of the most precious things I own. Peices from her sleeves were made into straps to be wrapped around each flower bouquet (mine, our sister Lisa's & her daughter Kelsey's). Her son Brett was the one who got to carry it down the aisle for us. Mary & Brett together. We gave a button to our brother and a small strap to our mom to have, hold & cherish. Mary was with us in more ways than one August 6, 2009!!

The picture of Mary is her at her desk in school. She was such a good teacher... The students loved her and looked up to her. I got to witness it! That picture was taken in December 2004 when I went down there during that hard time! The beginning to the end.... The spiral.
