Breast Cancer Awareness

October is the beginning of the holiday's.

We look forward to cooler weather, beautiful fall foilage, pumpkins, mums and Halloween. But it is also the month of  Breast Cancer Awareness. Many of us have been affcected by breast cancer either directly or indirectly, it's devastating either way. So remember October is more than the beginning of the holiday season, it's the month to go PINK.
Let me share a bit about my friend.
Gaylene loved the Holidays. We had fun times at Halloween. We could spend hours in the Halloween super stores looking at the different costumes and trying on big butts...we had so much fun! Then we waited for the new Christmas movie of the season, which we tried to make a yearly tradition. Busy lives happen and the girls grew up, so the past few years were different. But when we got together we were still as close as ever.

All proceeds of any of the Opp T Mistic items go to Susan G Komen of Knoxville to help find a cure. I wish the cure had been found before it took Gaylene.

 When Gaylene thought something was funny she had a favorite quote or saying, it was "that's great!" and it was always said with laughter. I know when she went thru Heavens Gates and she recieved her wings she said "That's Great!"
This is in memory of my sweetest friend Gaylene Opp.

I love you and miss you Gaylene.
