    Rita, Ruthie & Bob;
    Just heard of your mom’s passing & wish to express our sympathy.
    She was such a nice lady. I feel lucky as I have one of the many quilts/lap robes she made. It was one she made for Sylvia & when she passed, dad gave it to me as Sylvia was my godmother. If you visit us in Mn, you will see it as we frequently use it. Marion would be happy that we use it & not shove it in a drawer to save for whenever. Thinking of you……….
