    When I met you it was such a pleasure, you had such witt and a gleam when you told us stories about Rich. I am grateful I knew you Mrs Fadden and may God keep you under wraps if at all possible!

    Often I would stop at "Doolin's" on my way home from high school to ponder the patterns and new material in the upstairs fabric department. This is where I met Libby. She was always a free spirit and full of inspirations. One very busy "Moonlight Madness" sale I was in the store and Libby put me to work fetching patterns for the customers - it was extremely busy! This experience led to my 1st real job - one that I loved due to the women there and working with fabrics. Libby taught me to laugh with the customers and gave me many sewing insights. I've thought of her through the years and always with a smile and a chuckle - a good soul! Thank you for being there Libby! Your friend Cindy
