This past Monday, my very close friend and former college roommate Micaela lost her mother suddenly and unexpectedly, only a handful of days after losing her grandmother as well. I have had Mickey and her family on my mind constantly for the past week. My heart breaks for her and her family and the only meager consolation I can give is knowing that she raised an amazing, strong, and kind family. Without a doubt, she left this world too soon.
Mickey has asked a group of her closest friends to do a portrait of her mother, and collage the results at her viewing tomorrow. This is my contribution.
I love you Mickey.
