What a dear, sweet lady Bonnie was!! I moved to Lathrop 12 years ago. She heard that I wanted to learn to quilt and she introduced me to the Sew and Sews. She even helped me pick out material for my first attempt. She and Harold were such an integral part of our church family. They were such gentle, caring souls. What precious memories you all have!! Sending prayers and blessings to your family!
