Lil loved to craft and sew, not to long after we were married she started a craft show. It grew quite a bit over the years. So much so that she had to move it from the community building to the fire department, where she had a lot more room for crafters and the public that loved coming to it. She did this for 30 years and it was always the third weekend of October. She had a set of rules for her crafters and the most important one was that no one could start packing up anything until 4:00 when the show was over. Well on that 3rd weekend this year she packed up and left us 15 minutes early and I could just hear her saying ha ha I broke my own rule... It was just fitting she died on the day of her craft show.
It was wonderful for my girls growing up next door to their grandparents,my oldest Colleen was the first grandchild on both sides of the family. What fun they had over the years with all the grandparents.
We are all going to miss her very much, things aren't going to be the same without her laughter and quick wit. One of her favorite sayings were:
"I'm so *TERD (*she would spell this) Tired
I could *FART(*she would spell this) Faint"
It took me the longest time to catch on to what she was spelling and saying...LOL
Those Sunday dinners with her great cooking, Christmas Cookies( by the dozens) and Party Mix, Great Christmas Goodie Boxes she made each of us, and just that loving smile she always had. Everyone that knew her loved her.
This Blogs for you Lil, hope you're kicking up your heals with Joe!
May you Rest in Peace...
We love you....
