I can see Dad’s smile when I gave him this blanket as a souvenir from my trip to New Mexico in the late 1980s. Dad used it to keep warm while watching television and when a quilt made by my sister replaced it on the back of his chair, he found another use for it. This blanket traveled with Dad and his tools in the trunk of his car to and from Keuka Lake until he died on December 12, 2015. Dad was very conscious of the human and natural resources it takes to make material goods so he always found a way to reuse his valuables.
In memory of James Arden Estep (1936-2015)
