  Dedicated to: Robert W. Staton  


Amazing things happen every day. Beads #6384 through 6395 are dedicated to a remarkable man, Robert W. Staton. He is one of those people who I admire most: they do great things instantly and without fanfare, and without expecting any kind of reward.

It was yesterday, November 28, 2009, when my husband and I attended the Palm Beach Steeplechase. Since we live in a town with many equestrian sport events, we take the opportunity and go watch them whenever we have a chance.

Before the races, we walked across the infield to take in all the displays of cars, terrier races and businesses there, when we spotted a jacket embroidered with "Shannon Hill Polo." Its owner was Robert Staton, a friend of ours who comes to watch some Polo games with us. We greeted each other and exchanged a few friendly words.

But I was somewhat touched by the name on the jacket. As you may know, Shannon Hill was a dear friend and the world's finest glass bead maker, who passed away this year at a young 41 years of age. Shannon often had a show table next to the Neverending Necklace, and one day he cheerfully donated his own glass beads to dedicate them to his kids.

After the races, we happened to meet Robert again, and I asked him where Shannon Hill Polo was. It is a Polo club in southern New Jersey, which was unfamiliar with either my husband or I. I also asked Robert if I could take a picture of the jacket and told him how the name was reminding me of this outstanding glass artist. Robert then spontaneously took off the jacket and presented it to me. I didn't want to accept such a generous gift and tried to explain that I really just wanted a picture for keepsake. But he wouldn't hear of it and insisted that I keep the jacket for the memory of Shannon it represented to me.

Anyways, I got the photo, and for those of you who knew Shannon - here it is.

  Dedicated to: Friends  


These are the names of my very special friends
who have made my life a happy place to be after loosing a husband, two brothers and a
son in a matter of four years.

Because of these losses, I wondered why I was still here, as I didn't want to be. But because of these very special friends, I realized that my work here is not yet complete and life does go on. And, they have made it so much easier and made me happy to still be here.

Thanks to all of them and may your endeaver achieve what you are striving to do.
