    Healing the Spirit Memorial Quilt

    First and foremost thanks for looking! This quilt was put together by the people in it. My son is in the middle row, the middle block. My son passed away 6 years ago this February. He was a tissue donor. The people that put this quilt together volunteer for the organ/tissue donor center in Virginia. Needless to say they have been instrumental in my grief journey. I put my own square together and sent it in. I must say it's a touching tribute to our beloved family members who have crossed over. The quilt will be displayed during events that take place for donors/recipients. I couldn't be more proud than to see my son's memory being displayed for his daughter to see when she grows up. I plan to send this group some type of quilting supplies as an infinite thank you for their labor of love for our beloved. Again, thanks for looking!

    I am sorry for the loss of your son. It is a loss I can't comprehend. Your tribute to him and the quilt made are truly special. This group does a wonderful work and deserve gifts of quilting supplies so they can carry on with their efforts to help those going through grief. They are truly dedicated to a special cause.

    What a wonderful way to honor those who have given so much to others. Very moving and very humbling. I, too, am sorry for your loss. This is a phenomenal tribute to your son.
    Do not worry about the past, for it is history,
    Do not worry about the future, for it is a mystery,
    Only live for today, for it is a gift, that is why it is called "the present."
