Knowing she was an artist with a needle and some thread
"Go out and color the world" he wisely said.
"No patterns to start,  rely on your designer's skill
Limitless Fabric Allowed, you may have your fill."

"I'm in Heaven, all the fabrics I want, velvet, silks, batiks galore!"
""Fraid not, it goes both ways, you can't take it with you,,
                                                      got to buy it in a store."

Her wings tucked away,  as she came down to this place,
where else but in the Singer Featherweight case?
She made many friends, the good in them she did see
My world was brighter for the time she shared with me.

Jeanie, a true angel,  I was blessed the day God decided it was time for our paths to cross.
in Athens TN  May 1984.

My father was Jack Nystrom. I remember our family getting wonderful hand made Christmas cards. I think they were made by Jean Collins.
