A Prayer Quilt for Dad

I've not posted for a while due to my Dad's illness. He was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in May and God took him in his arms in late August. Above is the prayer quilt that my family made for dad which comforted him and now comforts us. Please visit my sister's blog to read the touching story behind the quilt and a family's love for each other.

Love you Dad...you always thought of your family in everything that you did.
I will always miss you and you will forever be in our hearts.
Thanks to all for stopping by. Happy Living! Happy Quilting!
DeAnna S.

  4. I decided to take a quick visit here and got caught up in reading your sister's story of the making of your dad's prayer quilt. What a wonderful thing y'all did for him! I'm so sorry to hear about your dad. I lost my mother on Jan 16, 2011. It's been tough, but God keeps reminding me that she is safe and happy with HIM. Praying for you and your family. {{HUGS}}
