these two are always close at heart!

 The definition of "forever friends" can most certainly be defined by these two...Betty Riley (left) of Fairhope, Alabama, and Sherry DeCraene (right) of, well...The Village Shoppes! Betty and Sherry's friendship is so cherished and so strong that, despite the hundreds of miles that separate their homes, they've endured life's trials and celebrated life's joys together. How fortunate they are to share the cherished gift of friendship! And how fortunate The Village Shoppes are because every time Betty travels to Indiana to visit Sherry, she also visits us! Visit Sherry more often, Betty!
By the way...Sherry said the above photo had to be taken from the waist up because she was wearing the wrong shoes. Any pair would be better than the shoes she had on in this photo...

Yep...she really wore those to work one day!
There's never a dull moment at
The Village Shoppes!

an easy way to tell if a diamond is real is to breathe on it like you would when trying to steam up a mirror.  

If the stone stays steamed for a few seconds, then it's probably a fake.

Diamonds are very efficient heat conductors, so a real diamond won't steam up easily since the condensation doesn't stick to the surface.

(And don't worry...a fake diamond doesn't mean you're loved any less).
