Remembering Laney

We were shocked and saddened by the recent loss of our friend, Laney. Her struggle with Lupus was not an easy one. Still, she remained strong and with great spirit, spunk and creativity. She is an inspiration to us all. I feel very fortunate to have shared time with her in our TVbyGIRLS creations and am very happy that she became a part of our TVBG's family.

I am so thankful for all the amazing people who have entered my life because of connections through TVbyGIRLS. I have gotten to watch and be a part of so many young women's lives as they find their places and develop their voices. I have had the opportunity to support, to encourage and to hold close to my heart, so many who are helping to shape this world.

I am thankful to Laney for her courage, dedication and loving heart.

My thoughts are with her family, especially her Mom, Elaine and sister, Simone. I feel the loss of a friend,and a young, young, woman, very deeply. However, as a mother, I can only imagine the deep, deep, devastation one feels in loosing a child. Sending love and thoughts......
