The Retirement Gift

“This photo is my mom, about 17 years ago, opening a large package containing a beautiful handmade quilt that the staff at her school gave her at her retirement party (she was school nurse for 27 years). Dad was holding the bottom edges of the bag it was packed in so she could remove the contents more easily.

I found the photo recently, took another look, and fell over laughing!!  We think Dad, who died in April 2011, would have gotten a big kick out of it, too.  (Mom said I could submit this; she has a great sense of humor.)”
