Some tragic news

I have just been informed via Helen that our dear member Elaine and her husband were killed in light plane crash last Saturday

Her daughter Heather emailed Helen in reply to an email she has sent to let her know that her block was on the way.  Here is an excerpt from that email from Heather:

This is Elaine’s daughter Heather.

I am very sorry to have to tell you that both Mum & Dad have past away in the ultralight crash on Saturday night.

I look forward to seeing the block and one day finishing the quilts that are in progress.

Our heart goes out to her family.
