    Lovely necklace Dora. She will love it and you are a special sister to make it just for her. Just remember, your mom is always with you…you are part of her. My mom’s birthday was the 6th and mine the 9th, so we celebrated many a mother/daughter/birthday/Mother’s Day together. I lost her 18 years ago, but she is still with me.
