Sorry to hear of the loss of your Mother - I recently asked Ruth Haynes about her. We had visited with her a few years ago at her home and she was still sewing beautiful quilts.
I don't now do any sewing but I learned how to match plaids when she and Mrs Ream helped me lay out a pattern for a 4-H project.
When I look back and remember
Sunday mornings at church I see her smile and realize she was a very "Classy" lady.
Will be praying for Gods' strength
and comfort for each of you in the days ahead.

We were blessed to have Miss Pat in our lives the past six years in many sewing events and classes. It was our privilege to learn from her and share a common love. Always she will be remembered when we see a butterfly.
