    To Everyone Who has Had a Part bringing the new
    “Move Room” to life.

    The energy and love that has come together to bring this beautiful room together is nothing less than awe inspiring. It is such a tribute to Chole’s Heart. It is such a beautiful demonstration of her family’s love for her. It is such a priviledge to be a small part in this process. We have the great joy to be the cheer leaders. We can not wait for the dedication of the room and be all together once again. Love to all and thank you. Judy and Gary

    I would like to share the following. While my name appears as the artist, much of the original art is from Chole’s collection. I simply copied many of her paintings and applied them to the mural. The oversight and technical involvement is from my baby sister Lydia. Without her expertise, and years of past experience, this project would not be where it is today. Lastly, the lion appearing to the left, with the red heart shaped leaf, looking up at the Chole angel, is symbolic of my wonderful brother-in-law Howard. He is in our eyes strong as a lion with a big heart. He is my hero. I love you from a special place in my heart Howard.

    I can’t wait to have this beautiful artwork up in our “move room” We are so blessed at EPU to have the love of Chole through her family being shared with all of us!

    • Stacy, thank you so much for the comment…I’ve emailed it to many members of the family.

      It was really nice to be able to focus on this project for EPU — it allowed a lot of us to come together and think about my mom and about what she would have wanted for the EPU move room. I can’t tell you how many emails have been exchanged about my mom and our memories of her throughout this process. In fact, it’s going to be a little sad when the room is finished, and we don’t have a reason to banter back and forth as much.

      And of course, it’s such an honor to be able to see my mom’s name remain a part of EPU — a place that was very special to her. I can’t wait to see the mural installation and the rest of the room either — I will definitely be flying out to attend the dedication. I hope to see you there.
