I got a nice email from Zona Turja and she now has 605 names on her autographed tablecloth. Zona has had everyone who has been at their home for a cup of coffee or a lunch, sign the tablecloth for over the past 20 years or more. Then, she embroidered over that name so it becomes permanent. When the person who has signed passes away, she puts a gold star by their name. So, with the passing if Dick Huhta, there are now 69 gold stars on this tablecloth.
