  1. The death of a love one is very painful. The wonderful memories with your love one is a fore gleam of what God has promised. The God of all comfort promises to bring you even more comfort in 1 Thess. 4:13, 14. There it explains if we have faith, we also have hope. My condolence to the family.

  2. So sorry to hear about Dru. She was a wonderful lady that I was about to get to know while I worked at the Heritage. She had a great sense of humor and told it like it was. God bless your family at this difficult time.

  3. I have many memories of Dru and Vicki at the Look’n Glass. Dru helped me expand my sewing skills as a young quilter. Prayers to Vicki and the rest of the family during your time of loss.

  4. Vicki and family, so sorry to learn of Dru’s passing. I remember her from Kmart and can still see her face when she was straightening up the fitting rooms. She was always a big help and some of her comments were off the wall. So funny and down to earth. Prayers and hugs to you all. Connie Stockdale

  6. Vicki and Family,
    You have my sincere sympathy on the loss of your mother. I always appreciated her willingness to help us new quilters and to share her knowledge on all aspects of the craft. Both of you were instrumental in getting me started on a “hobby” that I have thoroughly enjoyed for so many years. Thank you to both of you.
    May God bless you with strength and peace,
    Shari Wiseman
