This past week has been very sad for me. My mom passed away suddenly on Memorial Day. I had to fly back to Portland, Maine last Tuesday and the Memorial Service was on Friday. My sister, Wanda, flew in from Wyoming and my brother, Stan, drove up from Pennsylvania. I flew up from Tennessee. My other sister, Pam, lives in Portland and we all stayed with her. I learned all my craftiness and desire to make things from my mom. She was a very talented artist, seamstress and was good at everything she tried. She knitted very beautiful and intricate sweaters and afgans. These pictures are of the tables that we had at the reception after the memorial service and we laid out some of her creations so that others could know a little more about her. She was a very quiet person so I think many were very surprised to see this side of her. I'm glad we did it. It was s comfort to us, also.
