    Quilt made for a friend in need

    My friend lost her son in July to suicide and her husband divorced her in the last few months. She admired this fabric as we were shopping one day and I surprised her with her Happy Life Forever quilt!

    Love the quilt and I'm sure she will too. She will always know that she has a friend in you. You are a very thoughtful and caring person. She will have a hug from you everytime she wraps it around her.

    The longer I live, the more I learn that gifts from heart and hands are the gifts that last a lifetime! Your gift will be a healing balm to her heart.

    This is so sad. Prayers go to her and you for being there for her. We always need a friend to talk to, and we need to listen.

    How sweet of you. I am glad your friend has you to walk beside her during this troubling time. That is being a GREAT friend.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Lovely quilt!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
