This one is for you Grandma --- the original "Hallie." I miss you! .
When I was 18, my grandmother died from cancer. Her maiden name was Gertrude Halvorson and my Grandpa called her "Hallie." When @garylapohn and I had our daughter, I wanted to name her Hallie and Gary wanted to name her Samantha. We have a lovely daughter named Vanessa! Lol So years later, I named my business, Halvorson's, LLC, after my dear grandmother. Many of you have called me Hallie and I couldn't be more honored. Thank you! My grandmother battled cancer for many years. She was a lovely and talented woman. She was the person that started me on my creative journey when she taught me how to crochet at age 10. She was the best! 💗💗💗
I am grateful to be able to share this story with you. Thank you.
