We will truly miss you Kathy

Yesterday an angel on earth went to heaven.  Please say a prayer for my husband's brother and family.  His wife, Kathy, lost her long battle of health issues.  She has shown us that miracles can happen through prayer.  

Kathy asked me a few years back if I would make her a quilt out of the scrubs she had worn to work.  Of course I said "yes".   It really turned out to be a labor of love.  There were so many different fabrics and colors to use. While constructing the quilt, she went through a terrible bout and the doctors had informed the family that she was not going to make it.  I prayed for her to be able to see and use the quilt.  She made it! (one of the miracles)  I finished her quilt and she was able to lie under it 3 years almost to the day.

Her love, sincerity and smile will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her.  Rest in Peace my dear friend.
