Absolutely beautiful, Kathy! The meaning here is lovely. Just as these once-caterpillars have changed into butterflies, your friend has also changed into something beautiful. But she's still with you, and the love has never gone away. You are amazing. This is amazing.

Your talisman piece is also absolutely gorgeous!

Kathy you are so beautiful and you have the best soul.

This is a wonderful tribute to your dear friend and I am going to have to copy that quote.

Guess who is over the moon? Can you guess? Can you guess why?

You are right.

I received my picture and it is so beautiful and it is even more beautiful than what was on the computer and I didn't think that could be beat.

I love it Kathy thank you, thank you, thank you.

I am going to bring it in this week to get framed.

My whole family is in awe of it.

Kathy thank you. So much.

xoxoxo

Love Renee

Renee said...

Kathy I'm like you a Taurean -- never. You are way too wonderful.

You must have all the best qualities of a Taurus.

Love Renee xoxo

I am enjoying my picture, I am staring at her as I type actually.
