So lovely. Thank you, Deborah.
I am away from home and don't have my pearls, but my thoughts are with you, Jen, and I will wear the pears the minute I get home! I am with my son for the first time in 14 months and all I can think of is how cruel it is that I am so happy while you are so sad!

Couldn't get a picture of my pearls this morning, and a selfie just isn't working, but I am wearing them for you and your DD. I tried so hard not to cry as I put them on and failed. I am so, so sorry.

My tribute pearls. Thinking of Jen and family... I'm so very sorry about your tragic loss.
Thank you Deborah for starting this touching thread.
Jen posted a link to the news story and a picture of her beautiful, 21-year old daughter. She died in a biking accident. I will post my earrings and Longchamp a little later. I wore them both yesterday. : (
I just read the article. I can hardly believe it. Really, there are no words.

Suz, I know. And to read that Mardi's dad was there at the time, your heart just breaks that little bit more. Just keeping praying for Jen and her family.

Words cannot express the sorrow I feel for Jen and her family. One of my very best friends lost her daughter in 2009 and her husband in 2010. Things like this make you realize how important family and true friendships are.
Such a terrible tragedy. I wore my pearls today as a tribute but can not add a picture to this post. There really are no words that can express my sorrow for Jen annd family....xxx

Jenanded, I'm a relative newbie to the forum, and I'm not sure we've ever interacted before, but I just wanted to say how terribly sorry I am for your loss. I put on my pearls today, and I'm keeping you and your family in my thoughts.
I couldn't get a somber close-up so I am posting with a smile to honor beautiful Mardi and her beautiful smile that lit up your lives, Jen and Ed, for the time you had her with you. And know that I'm weeping with you as I type this.
