Dad wanted me to post this since he couldn’t figure it out😂. Mom was diagnosed with cancer in May, so this was quick and unexpected. Dad will check back often for any responses but, unfortunately, you all must carry on in her memory. She absolutely loved sewing/quilting, and sharing her knowledge with anyone that showed interest, she is horribly missed.
Her youngest son, Brady
