She hopes to sell her works in Charlotte shops, and donate her redesigned furniture and handcrafted belongings to local thrift stores. She recalls how much her husband, who died in October 2015, used to love to windsurf. Years ago when a few young boys asked if they could wind-surf off the Cunninghams’ dock, her husband agreed, but only if they would let him have a turn. She smiles as she tells the story. “He walked straight down to the water, still in his work clothes, rolled up his sleeves, and took off,” she says. Cunningham says she’ll miss her waterfront home with a beautiful view over-looking the sound. “I’m sad to say goodbye. I loved doing things like collect-ing shells and swimming in the lagoon. But I never did wind-surf,” she laughs. PHOTOS COURTESY OF THE CUNNINGHAM FAMILY
