My friend, Delene, has been a big sister/mentor to me ever since we moved from Ohio to the St. Louis, MO/ St. Charles area. We enjoyed being neighbors for a few years, rode bikes and crafted together, and she hosted my first baby shower in 1976 in her beautiful home. What a surprise it was that day!
This sweet Christian friend has kept in touch through all the years, and we recently visited in person to catch up on our families and their activities. She’s now a great-grandma–one of the BEST!
I’m so in awe of her strong faith, her attention to family and neighbors, and her hand-quilting projects. Most of all, I’m so grateful for her friendship over the years and the miles between us. We may not see each other often, but she’s always in my heart, my thoughts and my prayers. I love you, Delene!
