A Tribute to My Mom

The beautiful lady in this picture is my Mom who passed away last week.  She was the most fabulous mother to myself and my four sisters. Mom made sure we knew we were loved, supported and encouraged and no matter what road we took, she was always there for us. Wherever I was I could phone home and know she would listen and only offer advice if I asked.

This picture was taken on her birthday in 2004. Doesn't she look wonderful in her hand knit hemp sweater? She loved telling her friends it was "hemp".

Our studio will be closed until August 30th as I travel to the coast and celebrate Mom!


  1. My thoughts are with you. My father passed away last week also. Difficult moments for sure

  2. Hi Lana,
    It was such a pleasure to meet your beautiful Mom when she came up north to visit Vanda a while back. I am so sorry to hear she passed away. My very sincere condolences to you and all your sisters.

  3. Hi Lana,
    So sorry to hear about your mother's passing. She sounds like she was a terrific mom to you and your sisters and looked terrific in her 'hemp' sweater too. May she rest in peace.
