    Our friend, Tyler, was killed in an auto accident in March. Here are some pictures of the quilt I made for his family. Members of our parent support group contributed blocks and I designed it and put it together. Lots of love and tears went into this one. The girl in some of the photos with Tyler was killed in a car accident in March, 2009. Double sad.

    What a beautiful quilt! I've shed many tears over the memorial quilts I've made and at the same time found great peace. You did an outstanding job.

    The memorial quilt is wonderful! I cannot even imagine his families loss - he was born in between two of my children and can't even imagine the devastation.

    What a beautiful memorial to both of them. I too lost a son in an accident, and I can tell you that this tribute will be loved beyond words.

    Just one month younger than my daughter.....I can't even begin to imagine. Bless you and your friends for putting this together for the family. I hope it helps them through such a time of loss & terrible tragedy!

    A lovely tribute and one to be cherished. Totally sad of the short lives of such young adults.
