We met sometime this winter
the interview really went well,
and before I could believe it
she and I got along swell.
Natalie was good a lot,
jewelry making and photography too.
She was the brains of the Studio line
which is loved by so many of you.
Working with her was fun
she always had stories to share
about Kansas, classes, and Burnham
as well as her once multi-colored hair.
Now it’s time for her to go forward
down her path to the next mile.
And all I can say is I’ll miss her,
with a thanks and a big smile.
