    thats her mother holding the quilt. She died on her bed. She hasnt slept in it since. so sad. The star company will send a certificate with the location etc, so you can go to a planeterium and look at the star. you can choose the LOCATION AND BRIGHTNESS .CMARAS1234

    A very nice memory for her mom to hold on to.

    How sad for the family! I had never heard of 'name a star' quilts but think it's a wonderful idea. Should be comforting to her Mother.

    I hadn't heard of the "name a star" quilt either. What a beautiful tribute. So sorry for the family and friends.
    One step at a time, always forward.

    That's so sad. This quilt will be treasured as a memory of the woman and of your kindness.
