    Congratulations, Sr. Lorna on this very well deserved reward for your lifetime of service to very young (even pre-born) children and their families through music. You have touched many lives and, I’m sure made them a little better, by your work.
    To ask a silly question: Did Gilbert bring some of the good
    Belgian chocolate along with the award?
    Again, congratulations and blessings on your continuing service!
