Much sympathy to all of you.
My mother, Priscilla, was a neighbor and friend of Virginia's when they grew up in Fairhaven.
They graduated the same year from Bellingham High School, 1942
Mom recently died as well (this last October 12, so I guess they are renewing their acquaintance in heaven!)
Please see the photos that I uploaded. We have the newspaper article with the story about the glass beaded skirt.
I would be happy to send this news clipping and the pictures to you as none of our family except our mom knew Virginia. Feel free to email me with your address.
