This is so sweet. I loved every word. From the "dippity do" comment to the "she killed the Easter bunny" quip.

Such memorable words to go along with a memorable quilt made of Dad's ties.

Thanks for writing this. God Bless!
Great story, well done.
Oh this is so powerful. I can smell the hairspray and felt like I was right there. The ending was awesome. Congratulations!
What a perfect ending. Your story makes me wonder how many of my childhood memories are full of misunderstood relations. Congratulations on your EC!
Congratulations! God Bless~

Congratulations on a super win for a super story! Well deserved me friend!
Oh my word..I''m reading along enjoying your story when WHAM your ending hits me like a ton of bricks. I never saw it coming and I'm now I'm boo hooing all over the place. Well done and congrats!!!
What a delightful trip down memory lane. Congratulations on a fine job of writing.
This was fun and entertaining while the ending left a lump in my throat. Loved the references to all things 50's and 60's--I appreciated the sponge rollers as opposed to the bristly ones.
Looking forward to reading more of your work.
