We have been in Huntington since Wednesday night, but came home last night on a special errand. Joe (Sherrie's husband) ordered a handmade cherrywood casket from Figs in Orderville and we told him we would go get it. What nice people! The casket is breathtaking! There is a plaque the size of a turkey platter on the inside top that you can have any picture woodburned into. Sherrie loved the property up on the Fishlake and so they had a picture of the valley woodburned onto the plaque. So personal and meaningful. We felt very honored to go pick it up.
Today I made a throw for the casket. I quilted it in heart shaped leaves. I had ask JuNette what she thought about having everyone in the family sign it as a form of saying "Goodbye". She thought that was a great idea. It is a very simple quilt, but it will be full of love.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the whole family.
