I also always think of my girlfriends who did serve.
When my friend Kathy Comstock visited me in Wisconsin last summer this was her favorite piece I was working on,.
I made sure it was finished for my show. Kathy served in the United States Army and I see a link between the Army and the colors of this Ice Tapestry.
It also makes me think of my friend Pauline Frey Davy who served in the Air Force. The picture of her is on the flight line at Wurtsmith, AFB in Oscoda, MI. She also worked as a civilian for the Army for 27 years and was working for them when we met at a fabric dyeing class.
I am not sure what branch my friend Marge Hewitt served in? Everyone wants to be Marge when they grow up.
I am grateful they were willing to serve to preserve our freedom and grateful they all were able to come home after their service.
I am honored to know all of these women.
