One of the hardest, most heartbreaking, yet rewarding things I’ve had to do in life is sitting vigil at the bedside of a loved one as they lay dying. Watching the life slowly slip away from their physical bodies. I sat vigil beside my late, beloved husband after life support was turned off after he succumbed to brain surgery complications, and my father as he lost his life to Alzheimer’s. Once again, I’m sitting vigil. My dear, sweet, precious mom, I’ll be right here. Waiting alongside you. I love you forever.

I’m a simple woman…at least that what my DH (Dear Husband) used to say about me…I was a wife, I am now a widow, mother, step-mother & step-grandmother, quilter, and have a full time job in criminal justice. I lost my DH on May 22nd, 2011. I live in a small town in Texas. I love piecing quilts, I love quilting quilts. I have a serious addiction to fabric. I’ve been quilting since 1998, and purchased my first longarm, a Gammill Premier, in 2004. I upgraded to an A-1 Elite, named Corky, in March, 2007. I am in the process of rebuilding my life after losing my spouse.

Sad to hear you are going through this again. You’re a strong, wonderful and caring person and will be rewarded in the end by the one up above who is carrying you when you need it. Will be thinking of you.
Thank you. ♥️
