They were best friends for over two decades, inseparable, and sharing pastures together through their mothering years. Two greats in their own right, whose contributions are incalculable. On April 21, 2016, Little Liza Fame left this world right before her 28th birthday. Just three days later, Shahteyna joined her at 34 years old. And though it is difficult to lose them, there is joyous comfort in seeing these two share their lives together, only to be reunited in a different place in short order.

I always love the stark reminder of just how difficult those trans-Atlantic trips were at the time. This photo says it all...
