A "Principessa" painting - the portrait of another "Principessa"... Mona
Lauren Principessa, a sweet and exceptional person, painted this extraordinary portrait of Mona in her honor. She sent us the picture on Thanksgiving; it helped bring some light into the darkness. When I messaged Lauren how happy I was, and how beautiful the portrait is, she messaged back "I'm so happy you like it. I wish I had gotten a chance to paint Mona during her lifetime. I think of her everyday and she is loved."
Lauren, you have our family's gratitude for this beautiful portrait, for this honor. Mona would have loved it. She would have been so touched (as we are) and she would have said "Awww..." and have no words to thank you enough.
Thank you. Esther, Alan and Mac
