Quilt With Us

It's been over a month since the "love of my life" died....unexpectedly.  Most days - it's easier to think that he is still 'just on vacation'...so much easier to face than reality.

His siblings all agreed that whatever each of us bought or gave to Wayne we would get back.  I provided his sister with a list of items and told her that all I really wanted back were the FIVE quilts that I made him over the last 37 years.

Wayne's nephew - Joseph had been living with him and as he was going through the house, he was setting aside pictures and keepsakes that he thought I would enjoy having.  Before Joseph headed to Montana, to live with his mom - he bagged & boxed up my quilts, genealogy, pictures and keepsakes - marking them clearly with my name on them.

When Wayne's sister came to see me the 12th - she brought me a copy of Wayne's death certificate and then told me that everything that was supposed to come to me is MISSING!?!?

A few days later - I heard from another nephew, he says that he was unaware of anyone's wishes - yet took what he wanted.  Among the things he took - a box of genealogy, pictures & keepsakes and an orange quilt.  I told him all those items were supposed to come to me.  He was going to deliver them last week and never showed up!!

It saddens me that someone would just take them and not ask.  Many precious memories are wrapped into those quilts!  There is one that I would especially like to get back - we were going through a rough spot in our relationship, so that quilt holds more memories than most!!  

And right now....memories are all that they left me with.........

Sometimes it just makes me wonder about families. We need them, love them, help them; but at times, it's easier just not to know them............at all! I am so sorry you are struggling with all of this. It's just not necessary for you to have to go though it, but praying that it is straighten around and you receive the very special quilts and photos you are wishing for.

God bless and take care of you!

My heart hurts for you. I'm so sorry this has happened. The best part about memories is that no-one can take those from us. Hang on to them and pray that the other items will soon come your way.  HUGS

Some people are just too greedy to consider others in times like this.  I hope you get the items that were set aside for you soon.  He knows they belong to you, so there is no excuse for him keeping them.

I am so sorry for what has happened to you. Please don't give up! Keep asking everyone to help you get your quilts back.

I am so sorry!    Just doesn't seem right.  Sounds like Joseph has a good heart, at least.  Hopefully things somehow get returned.

Unfortunately not everyone is honest or cares much about others. Maybe he will rethink it. In the meantime, speak to the others that were involved in the packing up and see if they can do anything about it. sorry this happened to you.
