    Earl Hedrick was a CPA in our small town. But more importantly he was on the Rescue Squad for 31 years.

    I did not know him well. I wanted to do something for his wife, so I offered to make a quilt for her.

    I learn about Earl as I did this quilt. He was a mentor and a teacher. He was kind and caring. All the folks whose lives he touched will remember him always.

    I am very glad I made this quilt.

    This is truly a gift of rememberances. His wife should be very touched. I can almost see the tears well up as she takes in each block. Gives me goose-bumps.
