A Gift for My Sister

In August, 2003, my younger sister was diagnosed with lung cancer. She had never smoked, and was otherwise very healthy. In June, 2004, she was hospitalized for complications of the treatment. At that time, we were told that the cancer was growing quickly and Jean would not live much longer. It was very hard to find comfort anywhere.

One of Jean's friends gave her a Prayer Shawl. I recognized the yarn from my own knitting/crocheting hobby. The shawl was so soft that just holding it made Jean, her daughters, and her good friend feel so much better.

We don't know the friend that gave Jean the Prayer Shawl, but we are very grateful for the comfort that it gave all of us in her last days.
