"Which of these will ease my parting?"
Thought that surely never rose
From that heart so turned to others
As the paths for threads she chose.
Through the world her love has traveled
Carried into many lands
Firmly clasped into our blankets
By the workings of her hands.
'Ere we traveled to these sorrows
When we learned whose we would be
When we saw the scores already
Here as her posterity,
Did we ask to live this privilege?
For this honor did we plead?
"Which of us will ease her parting
when it comes her hour to leave?"
Would our hearts so prize this service,
were they not sown with her genes?
Through the world her love will travel.
She had given us the means.

Her posterity numbering over ten score:

I could never express the gratitude that I feel for being able to be not only related, but to have grown so close to such an amazing women. Everyone that knew her loved her and recognized her for the angel that she is. I hope that I can be more like her in every way. I started making quilts for my Etsy shop and for the craft fair because I realized that I love it and it reminds me of my childhood days laying under the quilts and my mom, grandma, and her sisters would quilt. It is a legacy that I hope will live on. I miss her, and I can't wait to see her again. Until that day...
Isn't she beautiful? Now I have to go to bed because I have a headache from crying.
