  7. I had the pleasure of meeting your mother at the hospice. She was a lovely lady and we had a great quilting discussion as I too am a quilter. She was very proud of her children and she shared with me some great memories of her life.
    She befriended my mother-in-law Elinor Morrison who is also in the hospice, and they had much in common.
    I was very saddened when I arrived Sunday to find that she was gone.
    Our whole family, especially Elinor would like to extend our sincere condolences to you both as well as your families.
