Our mom had a beautiful, kind, strong spirit and was very much beloved by her family and friends. She was an avid reader, and the flowered fabric on the quilt square is from a robe that mom liked to snuggle up in in the evening with a good book. She especially loved mysteries. Politics, dog stories, and the Jan Karon “Mitford” series. Despite many vision problems at the end of her life, mom continued to read through audio books, the MSU radio reading service, and the help of others. She would be happy to know that the gift of her eyes to research might help others continue to see and read.
