In my room I have an original piece of artwork by Sally Huss which says, "Around me I wear a coat of many colors, fabrics, and textures. It’s made of friends and family here and no longer here, far and not so far. They are all part of my coat which keeps me warm wherever I go." A few summers ago, I noticed a hole in that very coat.
