I just keep scrolling and crying and realizing even more how very many lives you lit up with yours, @doreencita. How lucky am I to have been among them! Seeing this picture you had shared back in September made me smile thinking about how our show sweatshirts have kind of made it possible for us all to still have our arms around each other during this interminable intermission. The grief that you won’t be with us physically when we reunite is immeasurable. You remain the magnificent soul you so generously shared with us all, and I hope we will make you proud not only in how we share our own gifts, but in how we live our lives ... like YOU ... in LOVE ... with JOY. Thank you, sweet friend. Sing now with the angels! ... #aslongasthereislove #doreenmontalvo #doreenmontalvomann
