We shared a room when we went to Houston. It was one big huge king sized bed! I don’t think either of us slept, we were too excited about the quilt show and meeting everyone from the Bee that was spread out among 5 states.
Her career was with the FBI. And she told little stories of her work and some of the funny things that people did thinking they would never be caught. And she told stories of being a woman in a man’s world. She was the one they looked at when the coffee pot was empty.
She raised four sons as a single mom. And she never stepped out of their lives.
It was a shock this morning when I opened the email her youngest son had sent to her quilting friends saying she was gone. She had just come out of the hospital last week and was feeling good for a change. Her meds had been changed and she sounded a little optimistic even. And then this email today. You never know what a day will bring.
I know there are a lot of people who will miss her. Her quilting family was vast.
She made a difference in my life. And I know she touched many others as well. I will miss my friend, my quilting friend, Pat.
