Pam Dailey, right, presents Mindy Bickford of Smethport with handmade baby quilts. Dailey makes the quilts in memory of her daughter who passed away in 2004 and gives them to a baby girl born closest to her daughter’s birthday, January 16, at Charles Cole Memorial Hospital.

This is the first year that a baby girl has been born on that day. When Dailey found out the baby girl, Shya, had a twin brother, David, she made a second blanket and was able to present them in person.
