Irish Dancing at the Wedding!

And the one person who was present in spirit for the Irish Dancing at Sarah and Drew's wedding -- was our dear Bella, Jackie and Sarah's Irish Dance teacher.

Bella (O'Connor) Yerina came to America as a young girl, and made a successful life for herself through hard work, and Irish Dance. She was a firm but fair teacher, and had a heart of gold. We loved her so. And she loved Jackie and Sarah.

Our visit to Bella's home town in Tralee, Ireland, for the World Championships was the trip of a lifetime.

She recently passed or she would have been at the wedding, I am sure of it. But we know she was there in spirit, in the joy and love that Jackie and Sarah have for the dance, for her, and for each other.
