"Last summer, Sully was playing in my closet and found a pink bathing cap that I
purchased when I decided I was going to start swimming laps for exercise. The bathing cap was still in the box and Sully asked if she could have it. There has not been a day when she visits at my house that she doesn’t put it on as soon as she walks through the door, and she wears it for most of or all of the day. It’s the cutest thing. When the echinacea that we planted in the side garden started blooming they looked just like my girl donning the bathing cap. I told her one day, “Sully, you know what those flowers remind me of? You in your pink bathing cap,” and we had a little giggle. I will always think of Sully and the pink bath cap when I see Echinacea in full bloom." - Teresa Roche
