About Me

I have lived in south Dakota, all of my life. My family is here, my roots are here. While I don't spend alot of time with "family", we always manage to bond together, when times get tough. Gunnar's death is more proof, of that.I also have a huge family of friends, and this "family"also pulls together, in a heart beat,when necessary. My parents live about 70 miles away, my husbands parents live about 7 miles from our house.

below is a copy of the email I sent to the MCQ group, this morning. I thought I would share it, here.......

On my mind, first, & foremost, this morning, is to drop MCQ a quick note.....today is the 3rd year anniversary, of the day I recieved the quilt, from all of you, in honor of my son, PFC Gunnar D. Becker. I want to thank you all, again, for your committment, to this project....my quilt is truely a comfort gift. It brought much comfort, the day I recieved it(exactly 9 months after Gunnar's death), and it continues to comfort us, as time goes by. I would not let the Fed Ex guy leave my house, that day, until I had opened that box.....so I told him, ''we were in this, together'', so to speak..............a few months later, I recieved a note, in the mail, from the same delivery man, telling me that he had retired, and that my quilt delivery was the delivery that ''stands out'' in his memory, because he vividly remembered meeting Gunnar.........Because of the quilt, I have also made a very special friend, Marlene Larson, from North Dakota, and have the honor, of meeting her, in person, recently. She made one of the squares in the quilt.....to the other women, I called, on 13sept, 2005.....Peggy & Laura, I see your names, that you are still involved with this project, also. Thank you, for listening to me, that day!Again, Thank you, to Jan & Sue, and everyone of you, for your committment.....
