    Harold , so sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. I passed this info on to my Dad, Clayton, and he wishes you his deepest regrets. Your Mom was a wonderful lady and a great seamstress. I’m sure her passing will leave a great void in your life, all I can say is that since my Mom passed two years ago, the pain will lessen and the good memories will take its place eventually. Love Jane
