To Marla's family, She knew me as Lambie and we met in person a few years ago at a conference. She was very sweet and I felt honored that she wanted to meet me. I'll never forget her. When she stayed teaching herself to crochet and recently posted her scarf I was so happy she stuck with it. I sent her a few links to help her get started. I'll not forget that simple exchange either because she was very special to me. I hope she knew that. Sending peace to all of you from Louisiana. Sincerely, Julie O (littlelamb18/lambie)
