Our deepest sympathy and condolences to Cleo's friends and family.  She was a truly remarkable woman, and will be sorely missed.  We all loved spending time with her, and you could always be sure to have a wonderful home baked treat with each visit; whether it was pie, cake, apple dumplings ...but her amazing skills with a needle and thread were beyond compare.  Many times she would recover a piece of furniture, make a suit "fit to a T", repair zippers - and all of the incredible things she made and repaired for many many others.  It is so hard to see our loved ones slip slowly away, but fortunately- in our hearts they will forever live.  RIP Cleo - it is time for you to rest well.
