As far as family funerals go, this has been the most interesting one I've been to.
Today was the funeral for my great aunt Mozell Stephens Benson, who died Monday. What really stood out about Mozell was a small tidbit I learned a few months back- she's a renowned quilter. In fact, her quilts are considered folk art. She was even given lucrative offers by at least one gallery that she refused. In the mid-80's, she was sent via presidential appointment to Africa to teach her craft. And it's safe to say the many relatives and friends of hers who received her quilts are now looking for them, for different reasons (she never charged for them, by the way). If I can find the one here, I'll post a picture. It's the least I could do, right?
