My cousin-in-law, Kelly was stationed in Hawaii...
Created By: Kunni Biener

My cousin-in-law, Kelly was stationed in Hawaii when her brother in Pennsylvania was in a serious car accident. Kelly's husband was overseas, so for several days, Kelly was alone and worried. The best way to send her a hug was to stay up one night and crochet a shawl for her and overnight it to her. She kept it until her husband came home, and then sent it to her mother at the hospital were it was wrapped around her brother. He tragically died. He was cremated, and the shawl draped the stand that his cremains were on during the memorial service. At the gravesite, his siblings each held a corner of the shawl and used it to lower the urn into the grave. The shawl was buried with him. I never met Kelly's brother, but I am honored that I was allowed to be a part of such a touching moment.
