Quiet Heroes

Quiet heroes is a term that decribe so many in our area.  But just wanted to give a quick shout out to the Knitting Group that my wife Roxanne joined this past year.  They meet weekly in Nevada City and among their many projects is the creation of prayer shawls for those battling health problems.  They made a beautiful shawl for my sister Annie, who is battling breast cancer for the second time…and she loves it.  I then delivered another shawl to Janice O’Brien of Sierra Roots, who is recovering from heart bypass surgery at home.  You could see and feel how special a prayer shawl is for these patients.  Great job ladies!!
