The language of friendship is not words but meanings
 – Henry David Thoreau

I was told a dream the week that Lula died that has had a profound effect on me.  I asked my friend Dave Cooper, painter, illustrator, photo editor, guitar player, and all-around nice guy to paint the dream.  This is what he created.  It's called Lula & The Cantaloupe Balloons.  I adore it.  It's whimsical, joyous, and makes me smile and cry all at once.  Thank you Dave, what a great friend you are.
