  talked to Mamo on Sunday
talked to Mamo on Sunday Sign In/Join 
i called her on sunday, she is doing ok. Working some, also has some health problems.

She has lost all interest in crafts, and has not painted in almost a year. That is sad, since she paints the birds so beautifully. She let us put a lot of her bird paintings on our computer. So I can continue to enjoy them. Just thought I would let you know.

Good to hear she is doing pretty well but sorry she lost interest in painting. Hope her health problems will soon be taken care of and she'll feel better. She did some of the neatest bird paintings on rocks-- I think it was . Really neat. Tell her she is still missed .

Sorry to hear that she has had health problems. I hope they clear up soon.

I too had a period where I lost interest. Eventually, I got back into it, hopefully that will happen for her too. She really did a great job painting birds.

Thanks for letting us know Jan. I have often wondered how she was and sorry to hear she hasn't been feeling too good. I kept all of her hand painted bird cards that I received. Keep thinking I should frame them.

Jan, thank you for letting us know. Do you know if Mamo has access to a computer? I remember when she lost a job she once had, she also lost access to a computer. I know everyone would love hearing from her, even if her crafting desire is lacking.

It saddens me that Mamo no longer paints her beautiful birds. I still have a couple of cards she sent me long, long ago. Please tell her hello the next time you speak!

sorry to hear about Mamo She was always so
helpful, no matter what problems we had with a
craft. Hope she has access to a computer and
sees how much love is out there.
T & P with you Mamo.
