My big sister Lorett was a beautiful, warm-hearted and generous soul. She fought a long, difficult battle with Leukemia and died in 2012. She was a talented singer and musician who loved Bluegrass music, adored her cats and enjoyed a long and successful career as a crackerjack legal secretary.
While she was in the hospital I made her a necklace using this vintage ‘expert typist’ pin that I found in an antique shop. Seemed like the perfect centerpiece for a ‘medal of honor’. She kept it with her at the hospital in her bedside table…and I have it now.
