I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news but I found out this past weekend one of our customers, Chris Hunter passed away last Wednesday Night. Chris was a customer that always had a smile on her face. Always had kind words to say, and had an unlimited amount of patience when she had to wait for me or one of the girls to help her. One of her favorite items to knit was a Clapotis. On her last visit to the shop a few days before her passing, she found another yarn that would be just PERFECT for what I believe was her 6th. She is survived by her mother, siblings, nieces, nephews, and her husband, Wayne, who we've seen in the store countless times. I believe her obituary will be in this Wednesday's Sacramento Bee.
If you would like to celebrate Chris' life with us, there will be a graveside service at East Lawn in Elk Grove at 2 pm on Friday, May 2nd. Please wear something hand knit in honor of Chris, and if you have a Clapotis to wear that would be even better.
To say I am in shock would be an understatement. Being in a business where you have such an intimate relationship is a such a joy for me. Being emotionally involved with each person who spends or shares a little bit of their life with me is one of the greatest joys of my business. It is in times like this that I want to reach out, give you each a hug, and tell you how much you personally mean to me.
Chris you will be deeply missed. I will wear my perfume you gave me, and think of our friendship and when I wear my Clapotis, or help others with theirs I will think of you. God Bless You and your family.
