    Great quilt and sorry to hear about your father. At least he was able to enjoy your beautiful quilt.

    I am so sorry for your loss. When you can finish it as a memorial to him. Thank you for your Son's service to our great country. Our oldest Grandson will be returning to Iraq next month.

    My SIL is a former Marine who served in the Gulf War. And a former fiance was a Marine in VietNam. He was badly wounded 2 weeks before he rotated out. I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your son. They (and their families) will certainly be remembered for their sacrifices for others.
