Yesterday I attended a visitation for Vicki Krieger who was a customer/friend of Country Threads. When her mom and dad visited North Iowa from their home in California, they always came to the quilt shop, maybe even multiple times during the visit. They were such delightful friends and over time I became “acquainted” with Vicki’s twin sons who were high school wrestlers. Vicki and her mom, Mary, were in the shop towards the end of October for our sale and when I read her obituary in the paper, I was startled. As it turns out Vicki got sick last Tuesday with Influenza B and died the following Thursday night in a hospital. Very sad – I will miss seeing Vicki and her mom in the quilt shop – my sympathy goes out to her family.
