      The other day I've received my little cushion and the two cute buttons! Thank you
      I'll work the buttons into on of my necklaces!

      Enjoy your day!

      I very much like your clothing line. The pattern in the tennis outfit I believe was the same paten I had on a pair of PJ’s (made from some material that would be outlawed today because it was highly flammable) back in the early 70’s.

      Hi, Alexz ~ Remember me? I'm Tara's mom, Joanne Giacobbe Gump, from Canonsburg. First and foremost, I'm so impressed with you for the wonderful, huge project you and your friend have been working on. I guarantee you are going to go very far:)

      Funny, but I was thinking about "movies"; and I thought of one that is certainly an all-time favorite. . .Singin' in the Rain. Gene Kelly made it in 1952; and did you know that he is from Pittsburgh? In fact, his sister was a good friend of my mom's sister. They bowled together. Tara LOVED Gene Kelly; and his sister requested before he died that he send her an autographed picture. Well. . .apparently, his wife at that time was not open to his family members; so there was very little (if any) contact. Sadly, she never got it; but he was certainly a great guy and a very talented artist.

      Thanks for all your updates, and the BEST OF LUCK TO YOU!

      Joanne (cousin from PA)

      Alex, I enjoyed your article and video. I wish that I could send you and Jessica more, but a fixed income does not give me much to work with. You girls have done quite a lot with 'Mama Said". I wish you and Jessica a fabulous end product. Love you! Gi Gi
