On August 25th, Susan sent the following email:
If you come across someone I forgot to include in this email (sorry!) feel free to pass it on.
She suspected most people were procrastinating on this (especially on the second part), which she understood, being a procrastinator herself (in college, she once wrote an entire 19 page paper the night before it was due). She did receive fabric from several people, and a few memories were emailed back to her.
At the memorial service, we will have fabric pens and squares of fabric for you to write your “favorite Susan memories.” Most of the fabric will be from Susan’s pajamas (she loved herself some comfy, soft, and cute PJs).
After the service, we will take the fabric pieces, and mom will sew a quilt. You can use more than one square of fabric if your memory is on the longer side.
If you are unable to attend the service, you can write your memory as a comment to this blog post, and we will include it in the quilt.
We will also have time during the service for you to come up and share your Susan memory with the group. We know Susan created loads of special, funny, and touching memories, and we hope everyone will participate.
Hope to see you all on Sunday.
