Condolences

A sadness to learn of Barb's continued ill health and passing. I knew her way back when Matt was young and I lived in the area. Back then, I got stuck when making a quilt and she kindly finished it for me. My condolences to all the family and friends who will miss her creativity, friendliness, generosity, and good-cookin'!
