    I met my Aunt today at my Uncle's Grave site and gave her the memory quilt I made for her using my uncle's shirts. Of course she cried. I was going to give it to her on Aug. 22 but since I had the chance to do it today, I did.

    Today is the fifth anniv. of my dear Dad's funeral.. we have a memory bear made from one of his well-worn flannel shirts. The bear sits proudly on our loveseat and we feel that Dad is always with us...Bless you for doing this for your aunt and her family.

    The quilt is beautiful and it was so kind of you to make. I would imagine each time she uses this she will be quite emotional, and greatful to you.
