Baby blanket, Generations, Grandmothers, Sons

This is the baby blanket of my eldest son, Matthew James Abere. He was the happiest child on earth and still is, at 22. He loved this blanket and was often found dragging it around the house. It was a gift from his grandmother, Thelma Coler. They were very close, even up until her death in 2011. She often called him Kokomo. He misses her dearly, as do I.
