I worked with Allegra on Altar Guild. She was an excellent teacher and I followed in her footsteps for many years. I am so pleased that I got to spend an afternoon with her after she moved to Washington. I was visiting my son and she and her daughter came to the house and we sat and visited on the porch. So happy I got to do this. I have missed her.
