Following is a letter to The Stitchers after presenting one of their quilts to a Smoke Rise member in hospice.
Thank you very much for the beautiful quilt you made for our Mom, LaVern Hagan. The fall colors of the quilt are so pretty and it brings a bright smile to her face as she places it on her lap each morning. She has been a devout Christian her entire 88 years and has also shown God’s love through her actions all these years, so it was especially nice to read on the quilt how it was prayerfully made and is a reflection of God’s love. Enclosed is a small gift of gratitude for the beautiful work you do for so many people. Thanks again and may God bless you all.
The Children of LaVern Hagan
