Our little Angel has gone to heaven but not before making a lot of friends along the way. Some of these special friends are pictured below.

Fun times at the Maryland and Pennsylvania Renaissance Fairs.

Erica told mommy she especially liked the “Rouge” pictured in the top left corner of this montage I made of Renaissance photos. We met “Bryan” at the Maryland Renaissance Fair, he was the percussionist in a band called “The Scottish Rouges.” We saw them over the course of many years at different festivals.

Going to the Maryland and Pennsylvania Renaissance Fairs were by far our most enjoyable outings with Erica. They always included a stay over at a nearby campground complete with campfires and smores (and adult beverages for mom and dad)!

It’s very important to have friends and family to support you.

Thank you to everyone in our extended support network of family and friends. The outpouring of cards, E-mails, flowers, fruit, the home-baked meals, the goodies, and the help for everything else!
