An Unbelievable Tradgety

  On Mothers Day May 11, 2014 my mothers husband went to the grocery store as usual, and bought a few things, on his way out to the car, he was stopped by a 16 year old boy and asked for his money. Billy refused, and went on to get in the car. the boy ran around to the car door and opened it and shot Billy three times in the chest. We buried Billy last Thursday, he was 87. My mother is 84. This has made us go through huge changes, trying to move back and forth between mama's house and ours. She is unable to stay alone, so our lives have changed in such a way, that my doll making is slowed down for the present. I am training my mother how to help me, partly, because I enjoy her company, and it keeps her busy. I won't be able to respond to comments right away, I will try to do that as I can, but appreciate your understanding of those who are waiting for me to finish special projects for them. I am still making progress every day, and will complete all my dolls that I am making for my friends. I'll post again soon, and appreciate all the good thoughts that I know will be sent our way. Love to you all. martha
