A memory quilt for a father lost to ALS
Aug 29, 2014
My dad and I were very close. In the summer of 2010, he was diagnosed with Lou Gherig’s Disease, otherwise known as ALS. The disease progressed really quickly and he very soon lost his ability to talk, eat, drink, hold up his neck, and eventually move and breathe on his own. I lost my father in May of 2012 to this horrible disease. When my mom packed up his things, my sister and I each took some of his shirts. My sister found Project Repat and had a quilt created, so I apprehensively cut up his shirts and sent them in to have my own made. I am very pleased with the finished product and quick turnaround time. I love my t shirt quilt and have slept with it every night since I received it. Thank you so much for taking care of my dad’s t-shirts and giving me a way to get them out of a box.
