My friend, Betty, died last week. She was 99 years old.
I met her when she was 79. We've been friends for 20 years.
I will miss her dearly.
To celebrate her life, I made a bead.
I wore this bead to her wake and to her memorial service.
This is the bead I made to memorialize Betty's life.
I won't go into the symbolism only because the decorations are reminders of our friendship,
and that I want just for me.
This is the finished piece. I love it, and it will make me always think of Betty.
Miss you, Betty!
