Loss Always Hurts

Today we received the sad news that we lost one of our QOH volunteers from the Antioch CA group, Mary Branscum. She was such a great supporter of QOH. I remember she met us in San Francisco for our first Honor Flight. I remember her smile and how happy she was to be a part of Quilts of Honor. I know Nancy, Susan, and all the gang will miss her. Blessings and prayers to her family. Our hearts weep as we lose those who have become part of the QOH family.

Please stay safe out there as these COVID numbers keep going up – We need all of you! We won’t be having Workshop until maybe Fall. It all depends on this mess. We do welcome visitors at the shop but we ask that you call first. Following California requirements, we encourage you to wear masks. We feel it is an individual choice. We can keep our 6ft social distance. We also ask that you not wear perfume as we have many that have allergies that can cause problems.

We gave out a Quilt this past week to a 10 year Army Veteran from the OIF era. Robert was such a fresh face to the shop. He was thrilled with his quilt and what we do. My sister, Diana, used to work with him. She tricked him to come to the shop and after he got his quilt, he took all kinds of pictures to show his 86 year old grandmother who he is taking care of during COVID. Now that is a good veteran. Joyce, Flo, Carol, Laurie, and Mom and Dad all said what a gift to give to that young man. We all said we felt so good to be a little normal.

To all our Chapters out there – be safe – we need you all. We enjoy seeing your quilts that you present.

God’s Blessings,
Gail
