Story From The Quilt:
The color and design of this square is representative of the temporary home Ruben’s ashes have now and the home upon the sea he will soon share with his Grandpa Parker off a Florida beach. The poem was inspired by a family moment in June as we gathered on the beach to watch the sunrise. Ruben chose to sleep in. We discovered turtle tracks left the night before. is Surfers For Autism, a wonderful group working with Cousin Ricky and others. is a site established by Ricky’s mother in remembrance of that special bond Ruben and Ricky share.
