I received a lovely email of thanks from an angel recipient and with her permission am sharing the contents with you all.
Beth here, Thank you so much to you and your "angels " .My husband was
collecting the mail and calling me on the phone to find out what to do
with the squishy letters to me.
Of course I told him to bring them when he came for a visit.
Opening the first one and reading the heartfelt message inside reduced
me to tears, not to mention the block too.
You really can't imagine how much it meant to me, gran was both amazed
and humbled that you and our swap group were thinking of us.
We laid Gran to rest yesterday,a quiet simple service much like the lady
She had 3 weeks at home before the pain got too bad and had to go to
palliative care, just as she wanted, all her friends and our family
visited with her.
One of the last things she said to me was, finish that star quilt, it
needs to be finished.
I am sure you will agree that Beth's Gran is now an angel in heaven and will be looking down on her to make sure that the star quilt is completed. with thanks to all of the angels that made a friendship star for Beth.
