I saw my nephew in a production of Li’l Abner this past weekend. It reminded me of how much I loved being in that show, how fun it was hanging out with Katie Saab Taylor, Amy Fong Falconetti, Ash Friend, etc.
And it was bittersweet. I thought about how beautiful and talented Heather Muller was. How she played the role of Daisy Mae with such ease and grace because she truly was that sweet.
In a twist that I can only consider serendipitous, she has watched over all four of my sons as they have started school at St. Thomas Aquinas. I take a picture of each one of them under her memorial and someday, I’ll tell them the story of how I was privileged to sing with her once.
