HHCC'ers Saddened With Loss

Being a member of a group, any group really, creates the opportunity to forge new friendships and strengthen old when connected by threads of interest.  When The HHCC was in it's infancy stage, the colors of Purple, Gold and Silver were selected to represent the group.  The reasoning was Purple stood for the passion for crochet, Gold for keeping old friends, and Silver for making new. 

Those friendships woven together from common interests oftentimes includes the families & loved ones of the membership; where even if they don't know how to read a crochet pattern, or how to count stitches, they still offer their unwavering support.  So be the case of Jud.

Jud's warm smile and big hugs were like jewels free for the taking.  When he and his wife, Diana, opened their home to host HHCC workshops, he was there - helping to ensure all went smoothly.  In 2003, when he saw the need for thread/yarn holders, he used his expert craftsmanship in woodworking to create them for the members that wanted them.

Today The HHCC members are saddened with his passing, but are richer in having had met him and befriending him.  Thank you, Jud, for being our friend, our fan, our supporter.  We will miss you.  Rest in Peace.  We send our thoughts, love, and deepest condolences to his family.
