A rich legacy

Most family albums don't include photos of Dad with Queen Elizabeth, and Mom at the hospital that was named after her. But the Packards weren't your run-of-the-mill parents.

I would love to see a photo of the blanket that Lucille Packard use to purchase for employees. I also would love to know who the manufacturer was. My daughter received one when she was born and it turned into shreds at some point and I had to throw it away. She has never let me forget it and she is 40 now. I am trying to find a vintage one for her 40th birthday this August so she will quit picking on me. I am wondering if Quiltex was the maker. Can you help?
