The quilt would be a keepsake of memories for this grieving, 88-year-old man struggling to find direction after losing his life’s companion.
The daughters shared the quilt plan, much to their father’s delight, and he picked out the material to which the blocks of tee shirt fabric were attached.
No less than a dozen women, including daughters, granddaughters and granddaughters-in-law, affectionately put stitches into that quilt.
An old saying among quilters is “those who sleep under a quilt, sleep under a blanket of love.”
And that’s exactly where Ray now sleeps each night, wrapped in the warm companionship of the love of his life.
