    Unhappy News

    it is with great sadness that i report the passing of one of our members.

    oldcottontop a junior member of this board died this week. It was quite a shock to her friends as she had not been ill. Linda had just retired and was planning all the quilts she wanted to make. She was also a valued member of her Church quilting guild. She will definitely be missed.


    she was a caring person. her signature was "People may not remember exactly what you did, or what you said --but--They will always remember how you made them feel."

    i'm sure she will be remembered as somebody who made those around her feel special.

    May memories of her be a comfort to those who knew and loved her.

    Condolences to her family. We never like to hear this type of news but especially at this time of year when families are planning family fun and joyous celebrations of Christmas.
    Prayers for the family

    I remember reading her signature. How sad that she was taken before she got to do some of the quilts I'm sure she had in mind. R.I.P. Linda

    Her signature line is one that I have remembered as a stand-out. I'm sure her presence on this board has blessed us all.

    She will be missed. I loved to read her signature line as it almost always felt like a good reminder in a busy time.
