My Quilt of Many Memories…

There is a song about a coat

That Dolly Parton sings

But my story is about a quilt

Made after my son got his wings

My son’s clothing is around my shoulders

Where I wish his arms to be

In a quilt of many memories

My dear friend made for me

I was so blessed to be his mother

Though remnants do not replace

The warmth my heart is missing

When seeing his precious face

The loss of a child is like no other

Our hearts are left with a large hole

But their memory will live forever

As Heaven holds their soul

Even so, I will hug this ever so tightly

Picturing him in those clothes he wore

And know my quilt of many memories

Is truly so much more…

Author: Christina Herold Trueblood

My name is Christina Trueblood. I am married and live in Central Illinois and am the mother of two, a daughter and son. Unfortunately, I lost my son in August 2017 in a single vehicle truck accident a couple of miles from our home. He was 24. I have documented some of my story on Facebook over this first year and have been encouraged to start a blog. I hope to help other families who have gone through loss and struggle to make any sense of it. My faith has kept me going and I believe one day, we will meet those loved ones we have lost again and it will be as if no time has passed. Until then, I want to honor their lives and know they left a mark on my life! Please follow me and share your stories.
