Friendship considered to be closer than association.

In this crazy blog land, we have many associations, but truly how many friends?

I have met several 'associations' that have become friends.  

This is true in the case of The Visual Vamp Valorie Hart, 

who encourages us all as designers to be good visual vamps.

She is a gracious woman with talent that oozes. 
 Her beloved Alberto had a massive heart attack in the Calgary (Canada) airport and is currently in the hospital there in need of surgery.
They want desperately to get home to Alberto's physicians, a medical evacuation is necessary.
Many have been donating by way of PayPal to:

Let's rally together bloggers and help Valorie and Alberto.
