I want to thank all of the forum members for your condolences, prayers and thoughts.
She died of a massive stroke Friday night. She had severe COPD, and had been on oxygen for the last couple of years. We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary on May the 25th of this year. She was only 5' and 110 pounds, but she loved working with wood. We built an all new, complete kitchen at our old place, all from some rough sawn red oak I had bought at a bargain price, and had planed. The butcher block counter tops and island top were made of 2-1/4" ship-lap edged oak trailer tuck flooring. While building the cabinets she would grab a piece of oak and take off to the RAS or miter saw. I would just give her the dimension, and off she would go, then bring it back right on that dimension. She was as much of a power tool nut as any man I have met. She did all of the staining and finishing on the new kitchen, while I worked my full time job. That kitchen and her work is what sold that house.
She was quite a lady. Our 2 sons, 4 grandchildren, and 9 great grandchildren, and of course myself, will surely miss her.
Where there's a Willis there's a way!
