Aunt Thelma was always wearing a different , colorful hat that she had knitted whenever I would see her at the store. She had a real talent for her many beautiful knitting projects. Whenever I got a chance to stop in and visit her at IVH, she was so proud to talk about her little Cubs trophy, and how Gary and Dawn made that possible. She was so proud of her family. The birthday parties at the Kopper Kettle were a great chance to reunite and to visit with everyone.
