Giving Life a Second Chance
Through Organ & Tissue Donation

"Threads of Love" Donor Memorial Quilt: Quilt 60

Kathleen M. Borelli

My daughter, Kathleen M. Borelli, passed away on February 23, 2014. I never knew my daughter was an organ donor until I received a thank you card from Gift of Life Donor Program. Because of her, I am now a donor. Her donation was two corneas which restored sight to two people. So, so, proud of her!

Then I received this invitation honoring our loved ones. I followed through with it and this is the result of her and the things not all, that were a part of her life. My daughter was a waitress. In the left hand corner is: a few pieces of her sundress, a piece of her work shirt, and the button and the red is a piece of her jeans (she loved red). There is a piece of her pocket book. Her kitty cats were her babies. She couldn’t have children, so they were her babies. She loved the beach. There’s a sun umbrella, sun glasses, flip flops to represent that part of her life. She loved snowmen. She also loved hearts and butterflies. The double heart represents hers and more. She loved Christmas. Notice the pin “come home for Christmas”. I’m hoping she’ll give me the best give of all “herself”. I miss my daughter beyond words. God gave me a beautiful gift. May the angels greet her and bring her to paradise!
