It would not be right not to include a collage of my very dear and beloved friend of 14 years, Pelé, who passed away in October. He has left a big hole in my heart, but the happy memories I have of him are so great that I felt it imperative to finish the year off with a tribute to him illustrating our mutual love and friendship, and may I say, this was a labor of love.

    I have been looking at your family collages. They are beyond fabulous. Your love is woven into each one, and will make each a family treasure. This one is very special to me. I have had a dog like Pele, actually two dogs. I believe angels come to us sometimes in the form of a dog. Even though they grow old and pass away, their unconditional love surrounds us all of our lives. This is simply beautiful, Sonia.
