"Threads of Love" Donor Memorial Quilt: Quilt 1
November 7, 1983 – May 22, 1997
Christopher, the fulfillment of my life, was a loving, kind, bright, considerate child. He was an avid fisherman, loved to play soccer, basketball and baseball, he collected antique marbles, and read Shakespeare passionately.
An environmentalist who was always concerned about recycling, and concerned for the welfare of others, he loved life to the fullest, making the choice to donate his organs without question. The loss of his life gave life and hope to three people and their families.
This quilt square is made from one of his handkerchiefs; Christopher took the photo while holding his camera at arms length during his class trip a week prior to his untimely death. The colors of thread on the border represent his in many ways. White, an angels wings; red, the love he shared; purple, his favorite color; yellow, his favorite flowers daffodils; green, organ donor.
This cloth, a fiber of his life is a tribute to Christopher, and all he gives me, his legacy, a precious journey. Christopher lives in my heart always. I will love you forever.
Always with love
Your Mom, Pam Covell
