    I grew up attending Forster events with my great Aunt Pat Powers and Burnett and Esther were always there. She always had a smile on her face and a hug for me. I was at a Christmas Bizarre looking at her works the day my sweet son was born… she made him a beautiful quilt I still have…
    Thank you Esther may you rest in Peace and please give a hug to Auntie Pat for me.

    Love & prayers,
