Proverbs 31:10-31..."She seeketh wool and flax and worketh willingly with her hands"
"She layeth her hands to the spindle..." "She maketh fine linen ..." We will always cherish her talent of sewn gifts she humbly shared with our families and our years of friendship that the military tied us together....Love and prayers
