Ms. Willard was a family friend, my Girl Scout leader, a fellow alto in the church choir, a creative mentor, dazzling with an embroidery needle, crochet hook and knitting needles, and simply the best cook. Her creativity, quick wit and thoughtful commentary will always inspire me. My heart goes out to her family.
