Thank you Sasha, John and Sara

I took this photo a couple of weeks ago, however have been unable to spare a moment to update the blog until now (family, day job and volunteer project have to come first).

say 'thank you Sasha, John and Sara'
This is our tribute from all 8 of our Trendon Sasha dolls (our entire Sasha family, we have no Gotz Sashas) to the memory of Sasha Morgenthaler, John Doggart and Sara Doggart.  Sara died on 26th January in her 102nd year.  Without Sara and John, the Trendon versions of Sasha's wonderful dolls would never have come into being.  They have provided countless hours of fun for many children and adults with these beautiful dolls.

Some of the tributes to Sara on other blogs include:

The day before Sara died, Theresa had published the following article on her blog which is Brenda Walton's story about working with Sasha, John and Sara on the Trendon dolls http://twizelssashaemporium.blog.co.uk/2015/01/25/from-childhood-to-sasha-20010174/

Thank you Sasha, John and Sara for these wonderful dolls and the pleasure they give.  May you all rest in peace.
