A Bountiful Life... and Remembering Dad
I have made little progress on the final block for my A Bountiful Life quilt.
I have also started the vines on the top border. I have had the time, but not the motivation to do much stitching...
It's been a difficult week here. My father-in-law passed away somewhat unexpectedly earlier this week. This is a picture of my husband and his dad taken in March.
He turned 90 in March and had lived a long and full life with many people to love him. But that doesn't make the loss any easier for us who loved him so much.
He and my husband had a very special relationship. All of us will miss him very much.
John and his dad at the beach about 1959.
He was a devoted husband, loving father to four children, grandfather, great-grandfather, a firefighter, and a WWII veteran.
A very Bountiful Life, indeed.
