Mourning the Loss of a Friend
Sadly, yesterday I learned that my supporter, contributor and friend, Joan Tesch passed away. Joan was the niece of Harwood and Sophie Steiger, and the steward of the last cache of Harwood Steiger fabrics. I am heartbroken to learn that she passed away without having had the opportunity to say goodbye. I planned several trips to visit her last Spring, but she put me off saying that she just didn't feel up to it. In retrospect, I should have simply driven down to see her. But, I respected her wishes and stayed away. I'll miss you Joan. You were an inspiration to me and a good friend. You will not be forgotten.
