I am passing on a tradition that began with my grandmother. She began a collection of Worry Dolls for me, with the advice that I let the dolls carry all of my worries. I am passing on the dolls and the advice to my own granddaughters. This beautiful piece is a source of strength as well as joy. Barbara McLoone
