    I am so sorry to hear of Deanna's passing. She was an amazing woman. I met her at Snowy River Quilts several years ago and became friends. I would only visit about one a year, but she would always remember me and we would visit for quite a bit. I am saddened that she has left this earth, but am rejoicing that she is with the Lord and is healed. My condolences to the family, sending prayers and love to all of you.

    My wife and I were lucky enough to spend some time visiting with Deanna when we visited Laramie a few years ago. Even though about a decade has passed since we last saw each other, she was so welcoming. My lasting memory of her is of an aunt who loved to laugh, was kind, and hard working. My deepest condolences to Jim and my cousins.
