Dear Shelia and Valerie, I am so sorry for the loss of your mom. She was a dedicated mother, loving Grandmother and true friend. I was lucky the day I walked into her work place and got to spend years having coffee and donuts with her! She was a great travel companion. We were lucky to have been able to visit some fantastic places. Many greatest moments with your mom started with the sharing the love of hand embroidery then machine embroidery. We spent many hours sewing together at work, home and at classes. I will miss her so much. She is a true friend. My heart breaks that I won't be able to sit with her any more.
