I guess it comes with age, that we start losing friends and family members on a rather steady pace. It is still so difficult. I lost so many people last year, I was hoping this year would be better. However in the past week I lost my second Mom Peggy and a dear fellow artist Dixie Lee. Peggy encouraged creativity throughout my life. She taught me how to cook and sew. She encouraged crafting as I watched her doing it in our home all while I was growing up. I would not be the craft artist I am without knowing her. I will miss you Mom but I know you are safe with Jesus now.
Dixie Lee was a clown on local Chicago television for many years and she was also a fine ceramist. Our ceramics class is going to miss her smile and fine work. God bless you Dixie Lee. We love you and will think of you often.
