I am smiling as I remember dear Maylou, who took us all on a wild ride. She introduced herself to me with her laughter in 1985, when I started Pottery. We journeyed together throughout the years laughing, squabbling, teaching, growing, hugging, crying and laughing once again. Hold on, Heaven, here She comes! Much love, Aileen
