My prayer shawl
Created By: Kunni Biener

To explain, several years ago, my cousin was stationed in Hawaii, her husband out to sea, when her brother was in a horrible accident. I couldn't be there for her, so I sat up that night, crocheted a prayer shawl (fortunately always have a stash of Homespun on hand) and sent it to her by overnight delivery. Here is what she wrote to me:

An Honor

Hi Sweetie - know you talked to Ern last night. Sorry, but I'm not really

up to talking to folks yet. Wanted to tell you about this really cool


As you know, after I received your beautiful shawl and cuddled in it I sent

it to Gail (Eric's mom) at the hospital. She loved it and received lots of

good feelings from wrapping up in it. When Eric died, she asked his Dad

(Lee) to take it back to Stephanie (wife), which he did. When Ern and I

were visiting there the night before the funeral, Lee told me he wanted to

wrap Eric's urn in the shawl and did I think that would be OK. I told him

that anything they wanted to do with it would be OK and that Kunni would be

happy her labor of love had a role to play.

At the graveside service, the urn was sitting on your shawl and when it came

time to bury it, Eric's mom, dad, sister and my dad all took a side of the

shawl and lowered it into the ground. On one hand, I hated to see that

beautiful thing go into the earth, but on the other, I love the thought of

Eric being wrapped up in it.

Thank you so much for your kindness and love.
