    What can I say about a caring lovely woman who was my arkansas mom whom for the past 30 years has been so dear to my heart. She has taught me so much about life. Whenever I had a question she would always help me figure out the answer. What a blessing she was to me. She taught me so much about quilting and sewing. I know she is in a better place and not suffering anymore. My prayers are with the family. She will be greatly missed.
