We recently ran across an envelope filled with newspaper ads in a box of memorabilia saved by Virginia, Shane’s mom. You can always count on a mom to document her child’s life.
Shane started Wood Designs in Bryan, Texas back in 1987. He challenged himself to build a roll top desk. He succeeded. Sold the desk and started receiving commissions for more custom furniture.
Shane found many of his original clients by posting classifieds in the local newspaper. Eventually, he no longer needed to advertise as his reputation for quality became known throughout the small community.
Memorial to our Moms
Today is the 5 year anniversary of Virginia’s passing. 2011 was a very rough year for our family. Days after I returned home from my own mothers’ funeral, Virginia was hospitalized and passed away shortly thereafter.
Here is a photo from our daughter’s 2nd birthday. My mom, Kim (in black), and Virginia (in white) just happened to pick out the same sweater as gift for their grand baby!
