Dale's HatMy mother, Dale Espy Little, was known for her hats.  For the reception after her 2009 memorial service, I decorated our porch with all the hats that she had left behind and invited the women who had come to her “goodbye” to take one/

Her favorite hat during her later years at the nursing home was a saucy pink number.  She wore it a lot and I have photographs of her on many special occasions wearing that hat.  I was especially pleased that one of her most devoted caregivers during that period, Barbara Christian, selected that hat the day of the service.July 1, 2009

Yesterday I received this Easter note from Barbara:  Sydney, since acquiring your mother’s hat I have gotten a lot of mileage from it. Today it visited Easter coffee hour at St Peters. Kaye Cowan and I thought you may like to see the Easter Bonnet so here are a few photos. –Barbara Christian

It was the perfect Easter gift!  And,wouldn’t my mom have loved seeing her hat used in this imaginative way!   Thank you so much, Barbara.  (And, Kaye, too!)At OVCC, Mother's Day May 13, 2006Sleeping Mom With Hat June 2006October 2006
