    Thank you all - truly. I'm trying not to cry as I read the responses all of you so graciously took the time to post. My friend told us that she's looking into some clinical trials but and other alternatives, but she has told us repeatedly that although she hasn't given up she is also at peace. She knows that we all love her dearly so that's all that matters.

    You and your friends are doing all you can to make this special lady feel loved - what more could we give to each other? God bless all of you - it's wonderful that you can be there for her on this journey. I 'walked beside' my dearest lifelong friend for the last 6 months of her life while she battled her cancer. It was the closest I'd felt to her in all the years we'd been friends and I'm so honored to have been allowed to spend those precious last days with her.

    Linda - we just used fabric paints; you can find them either at Michaels or Joann's usually in the aisle with the decorations to put on clothes (patches, rhinestones, etc)

    What a precious quilt from her special friends. Know this lady feels all the love your group has for her.

    The quilt is beautiful and may it give her some comfort as she bask in the love it brings. It is so sad and brings back memories of a quilt we made for a friend who had cancer. She so loved it and it was used as the casket cover when she passed which she had requested.

    God's Blessing to you and your friend!
