We had a request, very casually, for a parishioner who has been in a Rehab center and not attending church recently. She was very involved with choir, and her family has been VERY involved with the church for many, many years. In fact, one of our halls is named in their honor, Anderson Hall.
In finding out info regarding the health of this woman, we found she had recently been diagnosed (unbeknownst to the woman making the quilt request) with cancer. We made arrangements for this woman's sister to pick out a quilt and hand-deliver it to her in the hospital.
We were thankful she got to find some comfort in it for the short time she lived after. She died Monday morning (one week later). Isn't it interesting how God works at just the right time and speaks to the right people in just the right way.... Rest in peace, Karen.
