That's all the stitchy news I have today and won't be posting for awhile.
Finally, I have a farewell to say. My Uncle Stan passed away this weekend from a long battle with Lymphoma. He was my grandmother's fourth child ~ all four boys. The baby of the family, he is was more reserved than my father and my other two uncles. He was a Veterinarian and was well loved in my hometown and surrounding community. He was the head Veterinarian at Mesker Park Zoo in Evansville, Indiana for many years. He loved all animals and many times stayed up all night to help ease the pain and fears of his many patients. A kind-hearted man he nursed animals of all varieties. I can remember as a little girl, he had a pet deer that had been injured by a car that someone brought to him. My Uncle lived in small woods and he nursed this animal back to health at home. He released the deer once recovered but the deer would come back every time my Uncle called out from the porch of his home. He had a little miniature donkey named Corey that had been kicked out of the stall by his mother at birth. The farm that raised these miniature donkeys brought the tiny injured donkey to my Uncle. He nursed Corey back to health, but the farm didn't want Corey, so my Uncle put him up a little yard barn and fenced in area at his Vet Clinic. You'd pull into the driveway and yell "Corey" and he'd come "Hee Hawing" out of the yard barn. What a wonderful, wonderful man my Uncle Stan was. He touched many lives both human and animal. He will be sadly missed by many people, but most of all my family.
