This cup is now in the collection of my niece Sherri. It had been part of my mother's collection of teacups. Mom loved to send things home with people when they came to visit. I think that she wanted her prized possessions to end up in loving hands and carry the family legacy forward. Sherri visited often and wrote down and published the stories that made up Mom and Dad's lives. She has become the family historian and keeper of our history, so this cup is in good hands!
