California Lt. Governor Calls the Quilt a 'Beautiful Symbol'

NEW YORK, Sept. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --- Aylene Henderson-Bolds is best described by her daughter, Jean Bolds, as "a homemaker." Doing everything the old-fashioned way, Aylene Henderson-Bolds took care of her family --- hanging laundry on a clothes line, washing and drying her dishes by hand, and, of course, cooking their favorite meals.
