Remember your loved ones in a quiltIn today's world, we are pushed to clear out our loved one's clothing quickly between death and the funeral or after the funeral. A month or year down the road, the family and friends left behind regret that action. They wish they could feel his favorite flannel shirt, smell mom's apple pie baking apron, and see the worn elbows of his sport jacket.
It is time to open the conversation about slowing down the clean-out after the death of a loved one. Their clothing can turn grief into comfort: a bear and backpack from a sport jacket, a wall hanging from shirts, quilts from shirts, jeans or hankies, a clock from hankies, pillows from aprons. . .endless ways for the living to feel comfort.
Our sense of smell is one of the strongest senses when dealing with memories. Decades after being branded into our brains, the slightest whiff of something can send us back to another time and place.
That sense of smell can bring us great comfort after losing someone we love. Our skin oils stay in clothing for a decade or more. Imagine the power of hugging something your loved one wore
My passion is to help people leave a legacy behind that will bring comfort to their loved ones.
