My friend Laura passed away yesterday from a brain aneurism.
She was vivacious, healthy, full of life ... and suddenly she is gone ...
"My heart is breaking,"
said a stunned friend.
I was working on this quilt when I got the news that she had been rushed to the hospital. I had started it the previous day, not sure where it was heading but just wanting to handle bright fabric and be at the sewing machine. Well, among her many interests, Laura was also a quilter. So I will dedicate this unfinished piece to her.
And when I look at it and think of her, I will do as another friend advised. I will ...
"Remember her with a happy heart."
