Donor Family Quilt

Legacy of Hope’s Family Quilts are a patchwork of memories, lovingly created primarily by donor family members. Each original quilt square is used to make one of dozens of donor family quilts displayed at events and memorials statewide to spread the message about organ and tissue donation. You may access the individual squares and read their stories by clicking below. 
The quilt is an ongoing project and will never be finished. If you are interested in submitting a square please follow these directions, “How To Make A Quilt Square.” If you are interested in submitting a story for a previously submitted quilt square, please e-mail aftercare@legacyofhope.org.

Story from the Quilt:
Hi! I’m Debbie, Chris’s mom. First, I would like to thank each and every one of you for making this blanket and may God bless each and every one of you.

Now I would like to tell you a little about Chris. Chris was the kind of person who would give the shirt off his back if he had to. He loved to help people who needed help. He loved to cut grass, swim, play baseball and he loved to go fishing, and he especially loved to go to work with his Daddy, David. Chris also loved going to spend the night with his Maw Maw Reaves. And when it came to holidays, he loved spending it with his family, especially his Daddy and Maw Maw.

He loved doing things with his brother Marcus, especially playing card games and board games.

He really loved getting out and riding his brother’s scooter with him. He had a trampoline and loved jumping on that! Chris loved going to church with his Maw Maw Reaves. Chris knew his bible, that’s one thing I’m sure of. Chris was the type of person who could make you mad, but you loved him at the same time. His best friend was named Nicholas, they had lockers near each other at school. Before the accident, Chris had asked God to forgive him for all the bad things he had done and help him to be good. Chris saved four women’s lives as an organ donor. I thank God that Chris saved others. I know he’s still living within them and that’s one of the most precious gifts. The gift of life is to give life to someone else. I was told by my mom that Chris had told her that he wanted to be a donor because his mom was (me).

Thanks a lot,
Chris’s Mom

Story from the Quilt:
Aaron was our precious son and grandson. He was born 10/5/1980. He passed away 6/29/2001. We all loved him so dearly. He died from smoke inhalation. This quilt patch is a part of one of his shirts.

Aaron was a special person, he loved people, loved life. So compassionate. He liked music, liked to play music. He wrote such great poetry.

We never had discussed organ donation, but we thought this would be what he would have wanted to do. So we feel part of Aaron is still living through someone else.

This quilt square is to honor my son Billy Anderson, who died four days following a car accident on 11/7/2006.

Through organ donation he continues to live on in other people and give me something to look forward to by receiving letters from the recipients and knowing they are doing well.

I share my story and letters with others in hopes to inspire them to give when the time comes.

Story from the Quilt:

“Cayden’s Poem” by Karen Atchison

I shed the crooked shell that held me captive for so many years

I left behind all the scars that resulted in so many tears

I didn’t wobble when I stood, my legs did not give way

I took my first steps in heaven towards Jesus on that day

And all of Heaven cheered as I moved faster towards the Son

My body worked perfectly – something it had never done

I opened up my mouth and praises rang out loud and clear

My first words were to my Savior for His Death is what got me here

Oh how I wish you could see me – so perfectly complete.

Not a part out of line from my head down to my feet

My eyes are seeing clearly and the colors are surreal

It’s hard to describe such beauty and the joy that I feel

I know that you’ll have tears and sorrow will fill your heart

But a day is but a breath so it won’t be long that we’re apart

So go live a life worth living and do all the things you can

And know that I am watching and can’t wait to see you again.

Cody was a senior at Fayetteville High School. He enjoyed spending time with his friends riding dirt roads and finding an occasional mud hole.

We are so proud of the young man that he grew to be. We will always love and miss him dearly.
The picture of Cody’s quilt square is one of his senior portraits that were taken just a few weeks before his accident.

Baine, Natalie Ann

May 5, 1992 -January 11, 2013

Story from the Quilt:
This quilt square for Natalie Baine was designed to show how beautiful she was both inside and out. Natalie had a heart of gold and a smile that would light up a room. Natalie was an honor student throughout her entire academic career, including The University of Alabama where she was selected as one of 25 students to study Accounting abroad for the University. She was a member of Alpha Chi Omega sorority. She was also an athlete- a basketball player where she holds the high school record of 111 starts on a Varsity team for any sport at the school. Natalie loved her family, her friends and life itself. Natalie continues to give life to others through her decision at 16 to be an organ donor. Now her legacy lives on. May God keep his arms around her until we meet again.

Bandyopadhyay, Subhankar

June 26, 1959 – February 9, 2018

Story from the Quilt:

Subhankar means ‘one who does good’ and somehow or the other my husband, Subhankar, lived his name throughout his life. He was my acquaintance of 48 years, my closest friend of 40 years, my husband of 35 years. We were each other’s first and only crushes, first and only overs, first and only loves. This quilt square is inspired by a short poem by the Bengali Poet Rabindranath Tagore; it is to me the personification of love.

“You being you, pet, that’s the debt. Love is the way I pay each day __ with interest”

Story from the Quilt:
Our beloved daughter, Chelsea, died suddenly at age 9. We have taken great solace in the knowledge that four people were given another chance at life from her organ donation.

The photo for the quilt square was Chelsea’s favorite school picture. The purple monkey material is leftover from Chelsea’s favorite night gown.

Though Chelsea’s life was short, she was an expressive, loving child. She loved life, she loved her friends and, most of all she loved her family.

Sincerely,
The Barnes Family

Our quilt square was designed for the job he had and loved for 38 years. He was an O.O.I.D.A (Owner, Operator, Independent Drivers Association) member. He loved loading and unloading those “big rigs” best of all.

He was my beloved husband for 47 years. Father of one son, who is also a semi-truck driver, three daughters, ten grandchildren and six great grandchildren. He was extremely very proud of his family.

We are very proud to know his wish was to be an organ donor.

Thank you,

Hollie was a bright light in a dark world. She lived to make others smile. She had a gift and passion for raising and rehabilitating God’s creatures of all kinds. Her laugh and sense of humor were infectious. She enjoyed life, especially pontooning, horseback riding, the Arkansas Razorbacks, and anything mischievous.

There will never be another as unique as Hollie. However, her generous spirit has restored sight to two people. She will continue to live on through the donations of her bone and tissue. We are so proud pf her legacy.

Story from the Quilt:
Chris’Quilt Square: The green is from his work shirt, he was a welder, so it had some holes burned in it. The yellow shirt was mine. I needed to be close to him forever, this was my way of doing it. The center round is from his every day play shirt- he loved to fish and hunt, so I see him riding into the sunset fishing with God.

P.S.: The Quilt Square is not perfect. Chris was not.

Story from the Quilt:
Our son, my brother Austin had love of life with a smile you’d never forget. His love of hunting, fishing and a true talent with his hands, has earned Austin one of God’s best carpenters in heaven. Our family never realized just how fragile life is, but yet when your loved one is called Home, and to know Austin’s life continues on in others, is another gift from God. The quilt square was a picture of Austin and our golden retrievers. Austin asked his sister to take this picture a few weeks before God called him home. This quilt square truly represents our Austin, our son and my brother.

We love you dearly and miss you more,

Mom, Dad and Sissy

Braswell, Joshua David

January 31, 1980 -June 26, 2003

Story from the Quilt:
Josh, a Registered Nurse at Mobile Infirmary, was a May 3rd, 2003 graduate of the University of Mobile, where he received both the John W. Donald Award and the Bedsole Award. The Donald is a Nursing School award given at pinning, and the Bedsole is granted by faculty ballot to the student who has shown the most significant progress while at the University. Weeks after his graduation he was killed in an automobile accident near Dauphin Island, AL.

He was a resident of Mobile, AL where he lived at home with his dad, Clay his mother, Karen and brother, Joel.

Being a nurse, Josh made it known that he supported ORGAN DONATION, his parents, Clay & Karen and only brother, Joel, had no reserves making this decision. Just as Josh did here on earth working as a nurse in the medical field… His last act on earth was to save 6 lives with his organ donation:

On June 27th, 2005 the heart was transplanted into a 51 year old male. The liver was transplanted into a 45 year old male. Both lungs were transplanted into a 29 year old male. The pancreas was transplanted into a 34 year old male. The right kidney was transplanted into a 34 year old male. The left kidney was transplanted into a 65 year old male. These recipients were both suffering from end-stage kidney disease. All of these recipients are recovering at this time.

Josh’s patch was made by his mother, Karen. She took one of his nursing uniform green scrub tops and used that for the main background. The last photo taken of him by her before he died is laminated and placed on the patch. His RN nursing emblem was embroidered on along with his website link address. It was outlined in a maroon color trim which was both his High School “Faith Academy” and University of Mobile school colors.

Story from the Quilt:
Teri was a very energetic, vivacious, ambitious person. She loved life to the fullest; always doing things, going places and exploring new adventures. To be with her was interesting and very exciting times. She worked very hard at anything she undertook to do.

Even in death Teri elected to donate her body for the benefit of medical research. May those who received these gifts be blessed with longer and richer lives. Her ashes will be joined with the sea. We know that Heaven is a richer place today because she is there; but we sincerely miss her great energy and vibrant smiles.

Her family.

Bromberg, Keenon

September 21, 1990 -February 8, 2014

Story from the Quilt:

My full name is John Keenon Bromberg, Jr. That’s Keenon with an “o.” I was named after my father, who was named after his grandfather- John F. Keenon. My parents decided to call me Keenon since my father is called John.

Now, for all of you who are called by your middle name too, you know how it feels to go through life always having others accidently calling you by your first name instead of your middle. In my case, this problem was compounded by a name that was constantly misspelled.

But, other than these two snags, I actually enjoyed my unusual name very much. And I certainly lived up to its uniqueness in every aspect of my life: from being one of the most sincerely happy-to-meet-you people you’ve ever encountered, to being one of the wittiest guys at the table, to- not least of all- being the only one in the room with the most extensive movie trivia knowledge you could imagine!

And, if I do say so myself, I never met a person who didn’t like me. You would have liked me too.

I am Keenon Bromberg.

Story from the Quilt:
David’s quilt patch reflects his love of others, expressed in the heart with an explosion (of love) in the background. As a donor, his heart could not be used, but his act of love in becoming a donor is best demonstrated by a heart. One of his closest friends, a post-graduate student in graphic design, designed the patch. Two friends at church, both excellent sewers, implemented the design. All three friends who made the patch knew David for many years. They loved him as did most of the people who knew him. My hope is others will be moved to become organ donors through David’s gift.

Charleston, Orrin Trent

December 25, 1962 -October 20, 2010

Story from the Quilt:
Trent’s favorite color was purple because it means royalty. It was also one of our wedding colors. Why purple was his favorite color, John 19:2 is when the soldier put a crown of thorns and a purple robe on Jesus before he died for us. Daniel 5:16 Daniel was clothed in a purple robe of royal honor and with a gold chain because God gave him the gift to interpret dreams and solve difficult problems for the king and he became the third highest ruler in the kingdom.

Colburn, Gary Wayne

October 13, 1970 – April 24, 2017

Story from the Quilt:

My husband Gary was a kind and loving person. Gary loved to help others, that is why he became a donor. It is a true blessing to know that he lives on in others and a donor who was able to help with research. If his donation help one or a thousand people. Then his life has served a purpose. We miss him and love him every day.

The flag stands for two wars. He fought in Desert Storm and Operation Iraq Freedom.

The dog tags are for the soldier he was, Navy and Army.

The bible is for his favorite verse, Rev 21:6.

The blue writing represents his blue eye that could see the good in all people.

Corley, Eric Lawson

January 26, 1992 -February 6, 2013

Story from the Quilt:
Eric was involved in a car accident on January 25, 2013, the evening before his 21st birthday. Eric and four of his friends were on their way to a Christian rock concert. The accident occurred on Trussville/Clay Road, 4 miles from where he lived. Eric was transported to the UAB Emergency Room and placed on life support. Eric was admitted to NICU later that evening, with a traumatic brain injury, a punctured lung and several other injuries. Eric fought hard for 12 days, but never regained consciousness. On February 5th Eric’s nurse told us to gather our family together. His doctor then explained to us that Eric was septic and that his heart wouldn’t last much longer. The information the doctor shared with us was very difficult to handle. At this time we all knew what Eric would want us to do.

Eric was always a very giving person, constantly helping out others, so we knew that he would want to help as many people as he could. With his mother, father, brothers and sisters-in-law by his side, he went to his heavenly home. With the organs donated from Eric, the medical staff was able to help save at least three lives on February 6th.

Eric was the youngest of three boys, the brother-in-law to two sisters-in-law and the uncle to one niece and three nephews, a grandson, a nephew and cousin.

Eric came into our lives as a gift through foster care at three days old and was later adopted.

Eric will be: Never Forgotten-Always Loved- Eric was truly a bright spot in so many people’s lives.

This quilt square represents Eric’s dream of one day working at Disney World. Eric’s favorite character was Jack Skellington from “The Nightmare Before Christmas.” The square is made from a pair of his favorite “skinny” jeans and his dad’s lounge pants.

To be able to share in this project is indeed a blessing to our entire family, because it is just another way to keep his memory alive. We totally support the entire Organ Donor program.

Dendy, Hanna Montez

Story from the Quilt:
I am speaking on behalf of the family of Hanna Montez Dendy.

We lost our Hanna in an accident in July 2005, 9 days before her 10th birthday. Her birthday present was to be a surprise room make-over, using her favorite colors, hot pink and green.

Hanna’s quilt square represents those colors. The hot pink materials are scraps from a dress her Aunt Karen made for Hanna some years ago. The picture of Hanna was taken at a friend’s birthday party a week before the accident.

The buttons represent various aspects of Hanna’s life:

The “A” represents Hanna’s report cards…She was in the Spotlight Program for Gifted Children in her school.
The “cross” represents her faith in God as a member of Christ the King Catholic Church.
The “yellow butterfly” is our representation of Hanna’s spirit.
The “dog” and “cat” are for her pets Cricket and Belle.
The “cell phone” represents Hanna as a constant chatter box.
The “ladybug” reminds us of the time her bedroom window was infested with them.
The “flip flop” reminds us of a funny story when Hanna wore those to church one Sunday.

Whitney was given to us as a gift from God and we know that she was only ours to borrow until God called her home. During Whitney’s short life she accomplished so much. Way too much to go into here. The most important thing that Whitney would want us to pass on is “to always make others feel that they are the most important person on earth and to always put others first.” So to follow Whitney’s love for others we want to continue to put others first. We gave Whitney’s precious organs so that others may live.

THE TREE OF LIFE

In Revelation Chapter 22 it tells about the “Tree of Life” that’s planted and it has 12 crops of fruit. The leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nation. Organ donors in my opinion are like the leaves on the tree of life, helping to heal the nation of people. There are nations of people that need transplants and all organ donors are like the leaves on the tree.

Eli absolutely loved Legos. He enjoyed putting those little blocks together to create what lies in the imagination. We chose the Lego Brick Wall because, when built, it is a very strong foundation for whatever is to be its finished design. Our organs are the foundation of our whole body and if we can donate our “foundations” to someone else to enjoy a healthy life then that’s the ultimate finished design of Love. Eli would’ve been very happy with his design.

Steve served in the U.S. Navy from 1980-1984. His favorite times were spent hunting, fishing, and camping with his daughter, Haley. Steve would be very pleased to know that his death has saved four lives. We are so thankful for his decision to be a donor.

The greatest gift Steve left us was his daughter, Haley Grace.

Our son, Janzen Cole Easterwood was born October 7, 1985.

His nickname was ‘J’ & he loved basketball, his cars, Nascar, his border collies and Alabama football. A Roll-tide kind of guy!

He loved God & his country, family and friends. His 10-month old son, Salem Jayce was his pride & joy. Helping others was his way of life. He died on May 16, 2012.

What a blessing he was during his 26 yrs. & 7 months on earth. To know him was to love him! We look forward to seeing him again in heaven!

Story from the Quilt:

From his picture standing by the Narrows on one of many trips with his family he loved so much, Wayne appears to be a simple man. He did love simple things like just being with family, watching a sunset, feeding the birds, discussing politics with friends or reading a book. But really, he was a great man and not just with his jobs for the state or with the universities- Alabama, UAB or Birmingham Southern.

Wayne stood tall among men because of his giving heart. He always had time for you, walked by your side, gave you encouraging words or a helping hand or prayed for you. If money was the need, he would always share his. It was simple for him. Through God’s grace he gave all of us his love in his life…and in his death.

Very neat, organized person: meticulous! Tenacious! Never did anything “halfway.” If not to his satisfaction, he would continue until he was satisfied with what he was doing.

Tad had a gift of creating laughter and doing the funniest things- “big kid” at heart. He was also a very serious, compassionate and sensitive person.

He donated his body for research purposes to hopefully at some time find a cure for cancer. He died of lung cancer. His corneas were used and now two people can see because of his donation. His square is made from his special red tie that he wore everywhere when he was dressed to go out to church and special places. I feel that participating in this project helps me to deal better with knowing that this is what he would want me to do. Since his death, I too, have become an organ donor.

Dorothy’s life started on February 13, 1934, in Worcestor, Massachusetts, born to Italian parents. She passed away on April 25, 2009, and left behind three children and four grandchildren. The quilt design represents Dorothy’s passion for taking care of her backyard birds.

Whenever we hear the birds sing and see them flitter about, we are reminded that Dorothy’s spirit is always around us.

Story from the Quilt:
To My Wife: This is the hardest letter I have ever had to write. For I don’t know how to say goodbye to the most important person in my life. You have been my rock, my strength, had my heart for over 19 years.

I will never be able to forget all of the times we’ve had, either good or bad. But through it all, we still managed to keep our love for each other stronger than ever. My heart is breaking cause you must leave this earth. But your spirit, shall be always with those of us who will miss you.

It’s going to take time, to heal our hearts. But somehow, through God’s love & guidance, we will find a way to be there for each other. I don’t know what lies in store for me or the kids. Just know that we will make it through this because of your love for us.

I pray with all of my heart and soul that God will watch over us as he has done for you. I made a promise to you that I would never leave your side and I have kept that promise. Now I have to make another one, which is to never forget our life together. So, instead of goodbye, I will simply say, fair well thee, until we are reunited once again. I have, will and always love you. Forever yours, in God’s grace. Go in peace my love. For it is in His Name that I say this prayer, Amen.

Eternally yours,
James

The camouflage represents his favorite hobbies, hunting and fishing. He loved Alabama football. His sister Bethany was his favorite person. The verse ‘he made a difference’came from a school project. He told his favorite teacher, which happened to be his Aunt Nette, “All he wanted to do was make a difference.” In his death a difference was made to all those who received his organs and tissues that were donated. Zach always made a difference. He gave.

He graduated from Butler High and went on to work for the City of Huntsville until his death. He was very close to the family listed on the patch, especially his loving mother. We chose the color green and gold because those were Butler’s school colors. The words were inspired by our Christian faith that Victor was Heaven bound and we will all be united in Heaven someday. Although he is gone, he is forever present in our hearts. His donation was a reflection of his kind and unselfish heart.

She was from that very day the absolute PRIDE of her mother and father’s lives, as well as our whole family, and continues to be.

She had the most beautiful, contagious smile!! That smile was on her face at ALL times…

The color purple on her square represents her love for her Alma Mater Winston County High. She was a cheerleader in elementary, middle, high school and college as well. She won the UCA cheerleading award, as well as the opportunity to perform for the Queen of London in 2001 in the Lord of London’s Parade.

She was a very avid Alabama and Jeff Gordan fan. She had a love for all others as well as animals.

She saw the best in everyone, and brought out the best of everyone.

We are so proud for you that she was such a giving person. She left this earth November 20, 2007 just as she entered it, giving of herself…

One of the things Bubba loved was making people laugh. He always would make you laugh when you were feeling down. A part of Bubba’s favorite verse in the Bible was, “For I am now ready to be offered and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought the good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.”
Bubba will always be missed.

Love You Forever,

Heath, Candace

January 8, 1983 -April 20, 2009

Story from the Quilt:
We chose a lighthouse for our design because of our daughter’s name and because of what she felt her purpose in life was.

Before Candace was born we had her name already picked out, then two weeks before she was born some close friends had a girl and they named their daughter the name we had picked out. We just could not use the same name so my husband and I each picked three names we liked. We matched on two, so our first born child and daughter became Candace Tara. She looked up what her name meant. Candace means brilliant white light and Tara means tower. From that day on she would tell everyone her name meant lighthouse.

The day after she went home to be with the Lord we were reading her journals. On the second page we read these words she had written, “I want to have a love for life and a light that shines through me conveying to others your love Jesus.”

I believe God gave her that name because he knew that she would be a lighthouse pointing others to him and his love for them.

She did not think long and hard about becoming a donor, to her it seemed like the natural thing to do. When she talked to others about becoming a donor she would always say that when you die if you know Jesus then you will be in heaven with a new perfect body. She would give to anyone anything she could to help while she was alive; so she saw no reason not to give the body she was leaving behind in this world to anyone that could use it.

Just two weeks before Katie’s death her sister and nephews were visiting from Kentucky and her nephew (Charlie) asked why Katie was sleeping during the day. His mom explained that Katie worked at night and therefore slept during the day. Charlie’s reply was “Oh, like an owl!” Everyone thought this was very funny and perceptive for a little boy who had only been in the U.S. for eight months. After Katie’s accident, owls just seemed to turn up everywhere and when the sandals Katie had been wearing in the accident were returned to us…….there were owls embossed in the leather in the bottom of each shoe. Owls have now become a sweet reminder of our precious Katie.

He was a family man and loved family reunions. “Family Reunion” is the name of his quilt square. We traveled many miles, most of which were going to see family and friends and attending reunions.

He loved his church, family, friends and enjoyed helping anyone who needed an extra helper or travel companion.

He is greatly missed.

“I miss your laughter, your touch, your boundless energy, and your place in our family. But as you requested, we will live on and not be sad for you. My love eternally, Momma.”

“To my sister: You were a loving sister. Through all the changes that both our lives took, our love for one another never changed. Always yours, Sean.”

“My wife was a beautiful woman; quirky, fun, and the best mother ever. She gave me her best, even at her worst. She loved our daughter very much and poured everything she had to help her grow. Jennifer, you touched my life in a way that can’t be explained. Thank you. Your husband, Bobby.”

Story from the Quilt:
My son Brandon Joe Kennemer passed away at a young age of 18. He lived in Grant, Alabama and is known as a strong Christian and a great person at heart.

He was taken from us on January 12, 2006 at 8:05 pm when he was in a bad car accident. He was also going to school to be in the medical field, at the time of his death, he was a certified nursing assistant. He was also taking ministry lessons. He always put everyone else before himself.

His quilt represents 3 important things in his background. The first symbol is the Auburn emblem- it stands for his Auburn pride. The second is a cross- it represents his strong Christianity and it shows how he turned his life around and gave it to our Heavenly Father. The last symbol is the heart- it represents how much we appreciate the Donor program. We would like to share how much the Donor program means to us. It gives us peace and comfort to know that his organs have been used to help the life of another person. He had always wanted to help people, which is one reason we chose to use the fabric from his scrubs as another symbol of how he liked to help people.

Brandon’s Mom

Our grandson, Brandon, was an 18 year old resident of Alabama when he was taken from this earthly life by a car accident. We are pleased that he chose to donate his organs so that it would allow other lives to be extended or improved. He was a very thoughtful person. He tended to put others needs before his own. He was a Certified Nurses Assistant and was about to enroll in college to begin his studies in nursing or related medical field.

He was a Christian and was very involved in his church youth group. He was well loved by his church family. He was involved in Lads to Leaders, which is a tool used to help prepare youth for service in the Kingdom of God and help develop their overall leadership potential.

Sincerely,
Brandon’s Grandparents- Father’s Side

Kimbrel, Misty Dawn

December 13, 1979 -November 24, 2005

Story from the Quilt:
Dawn Kimbrel was a gift within herself. She had much Faith in God. Her favorite scripture was Luke 1: 45- Blessed is she who believes that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished. Dawn wanted more than anything to be a mother and the Lord blessed her with a child before he came to take her home. Giving was like a hobby to her, she did this daily and left many blessings behind for us to enjoy. She loved people and thrived on conversation. Life was her canvas. Her brush left bright, broad, lasting strokes and her smile warms our heart today. We cherish her gifts and thank God for this blessing we found in her. This Quilt Square is in honor of our Angel, a true Superstar. Giving is the greatest blessing of love, and to love others enough to give life is what it’s all about. The Lord showed us this long ago. This project is about Loving, Giving and Living. What a Blessing!!!

Knight, Ansel Adam

July 20, 1985 -May 10, 2003

Story from the Quilt:
The family and friends of Ansel Adam Knight are honored to place a quilt square on the Alabama Donor Family Quilt in memory of our loved one. Adam was a vibrant young man who loved life and people. He was outgoing, loved sports and playing the drums. Adam had a gift of wiggling his ears that made everyone laugh.

The quilt square represents a decal Adam’s friends made in his memory. The pink cloth is for his nickname, Pink, he was called by friends. The black represents part of his school colors which were black and gold.

Knight, Kaleb Damion

December 4, 1996 – June 24, 2020

Story from the Quilt:

Kaleb was a kind and loving young man that was full of energy and always wanted to make others laugh. He enjoyed listening to music and dancing (2-step, line dancing). You would always see him with his cowboy boots on even with shorts. Kaleb was such a country by with the pretty blue eyes, smile and country accent. He enjoyed hunting, fishing and adventured out and bull riding. Being in the woods, standing on a creek bank brought Kaleb so much peace. When he was old enough for tattoos, he got fishing, hunting tattoos and he had gotten six deer tracks on the back of his right arm. His younger brother also got these tattoos on the back of his left arm, so when they walk side by side, they join.

All of these things on his quilt square gave him happiness and peace. Kaleb enjoyed life until mental illness and drugs took his soul. Even though this darkness took over Kaleb’s soul but it never took the love in his heart. Bringing kindness to others was always in his heart and soul from the time he was born and still continues after he has passed.

Story from the Quilt:
My husband Francis passed over but in doing so he continued his life’s work helping others. No greater gift can be given than to help those in need. He lost his life but has enriched others so that they may live happier, healthier lives. The letters from the recipients have only confirmed our commitment. One person had disabling headaches for years and is now headache free. Another high school athlete is able to continue his athletic career because of my husband’s willingness to help others. I know my husband would be very pleased to know how these people’s lives have been enhanced.

Lackley, Amber Brianna

June 16, 1988 -April 17, 2003

Story from the Quilt:
Participating in this very worthwhile project is very important to me as it represents the love my daughter had for others and her gift of life to others.

In trying to design the quilt square, we decided that simply having her picture with her big smile and beautiful blue eyes said it all. We had a friend put her picture on the square and we also included an Eeyore patch as he was her favorite character.

In being part of such a beautiful and meaningful project, our family can honor Amber’s memory while placing her quilt square to show she is not forgotten.

Living in Knoxville, Alabama, he was a loving father of Megan 12 and Dylan 7, and loving husband and best friend of Diane of two years. Michael was a painter by trade. He was a friendly person always smiling and willing to help anyone, with a wonderful sense of humor. The decision to donate his organs was easy for me, because I know that is what he would have wanted. My husband’s quilt patch is made from a piece of his painter’s pants and a patch off his back pocket. Michael is missed very much, but I can take comfort in knowing my decision has helped someone else to see through his corneas, also helped many other people with his tissue and strong bones, for this I am blessed.

Lawson, Lloyd Edward, III

January 4, 1972 – March 13, 2000

Story from the Quilt:
Lloyd E. Lawson III was a wonderful man. But he was so much more than just a man. He was a father, son, brother and a friend.

He was so excited when he found out that he was having a son, Blake. Blake was everything to him! He worked so hard every day to make sure that Blake had everything he needed. Even though their time together was short, Blake still knows that his Dad hears his every prayer and that Dad watches over him every second, every day.

Lloyd was the model son, the one that all parents want their children to be. He loved and respected his parents; it was evident in his interaction with them. He spent a lot of his free time at their house helping with odd jobs: anything that needed attention. Family was important to him and he liked having everyone together as often as possible.

Lloyd was also a great older brother. His younger brother, Tim, and both his younger sisters, Lindsay and Jennifer, looked up to him. His influence was so great, they thought of him as an additional parent. (continued)
Finally, Lloyd was a gracious friend. He would do anything for anybody at anytime. All his friends cherish the time spent with him.

Lloyd was an inspiration to all who knew him because he was so kind and radiated the love of his Christian beliefs. His favorite Scripture was Psalm 23. In verse two, David talks about lying down in green pastures; I know by brother is at rest and at peace, waiting for us to join him there.

This is symbolized on the square by the music notes and clefs. While he was a true master of the bass guitar, he could make a tune on any instrument.

Nichole got into a small group at church two months before she died and the night before she stood up in church and shared the struggles of addiction but she was so thankful for God never left her side.

Story from the Quilt:
The design has a grey cat to symbolize Muffin. He was dropped in our driveway 14 years ago. Sara named him and we both spoiled him.

Sara was baptized in August, 1970 and was the church clerk for several years. Three weeks before she died, the church just finished singing, “A Better Place to go.” Sara stood up and said “If I go before you, don’t worry about me, because I have a better place to go.”

Later that month, Sara finished testifying on August 20, 2006, and sat down. The first stroke happened at that time. Four days later a second stroke took her life. Four people received a chance for a better life because of Sara’s gift.

Sara and Charlie were blessed by God to be married for 34 years.

With your example many others will follow, for they too wish to be a Star that shines forever. You are a beautiful Star in the sky. We love you!

McCollum, Wade

June 8, 1962 – June 25, 2018

Story from the Quilt:

Wade and I were married 18 blessed years and share five children – three sons and two daughters. Together we have 10 wonderful grandchildren, three girls and seven boys. All our grandchildren loved their Papa very much, and told him so, but he would always tell them, “I love you more.”

Wade was a graduate of Cherokee High School and an avid Alabama Football fan. He worked at Robbins LLC as a plant supervisor, with 30 people under him. He treated the people he supervised the way he wanted to be treated. Each and every one of them loved him.

Wade loved riding motorcycles and used that love for St. Jude’s Children Hospital. For sixteen years he led a motorcycle ride to the hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. The ride was part of “Rally at the River”, an event held each year in Florence. AL. Wade’s rides helped the rally raise over $250,000 for St. Jude’s.

Wade and I loved going to the mountains every year. We especially loved the trips when our children and grandchildren came too. Wade was always looking for something new to see, especially on our trips. On one trip to Cades Cove we found a troll bridge. During our trip in January of 2018 we found the Pearl Harbor Tree.

Wade’s personality was witty and funny. He loved and was always giving of himself to others. He is missed more with each passing day.

She felt that being an organ donor was very important and had directed that physicians use anything that could benefit others. We chose a fabric she used in her home that would be memorable to all who knew her. She was greatly loved and dearly missed, but we take comfort in the knowledge that even in her death, she continues to help others.

She wrote in a friend’s journal: “When hardship comes into your life, you are going to ask ‘Why is this happening to me?’Or will you say ‘How can this be used for God’s glory?’” She loved Jesus Christ and felt like it was her destiny to become a missionary. She wanted to give hope to the hopeless. Olivia brought hundreds of students in Tuscaloosa County together in prayer after her accident. She reached people for Christ all over the United States and in 40 foreign countries with her Facebook page, “Praying for Olivia.” She indicated on her driver’s license that she wanted to become an organ donor. Olivia gave life to five different people. She also gave the gift of sight. In the end, Olivia reached her goal of becoming a missionary. She will be dearly missed by many who may find comfort knowing she is now in heaven with her beloved God.

Story from the Quilt:
My mother was born in Lisbon, Ohio on June 14, 1918. She died on February 10th, 2003, in Huntsville, AL. My mom was the youngest of four children. She was a mother of two, grandmother of six and great-grandmother of five.

I believe her request that her body be donated for medical research was to help further research that would help eliminate many illnesses and diseases for our future generations. She knew how one can suffer from a devastating illness. My brother had fought brain cancer for 19 months, three years earlier and died. My mom was at his side during this time. Thus, my quilting square symbolizes this idea.

Working on the quilting square was very helpful in working through the anniversary of my mother’s death. I hope the Donor quilt will encourage the gift of organ donation not just for research, but so others may live and retain their sight. Thank you for allowing me to participate in your quilt effort.

Story From The Quilt:
“Miss Me But Let Me Go”

When I come to the end of the Road
And the sun has set for me,
I want no rites in a gloom-filled room.
Why should you cry for a soul set free?

Miss me a little but not too long,
And not with your head bowed low.
Remember the love we once shared.
Miss me, but let me go.

For this a journey that we all must take
And each must go alone.
It’s all part of life’s perfect plan,
A step on the road to home.

When you are lonely and sick at heart,
Go to the family and friends we know,
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds,
Miss me, but let me go.

He had already been picked for the 8th grade team and had his physical in June 1997. He had beautiful green eyes and the greatest smile. He played baseball four straight seasons. He made above average grades. To lose him, broke my heart into many pieces. He “thought” he could help a 15 year old with a troubled life; but the effort only cost him his own. His quilt square was cut from the blue jeans he was wearing.

Story from the Quilt:
You loved to fish, hunt, ride your motorcycle, play the trumpet in the WHMS and CCHS bands. When “grounded” you rode your bike and that was what you wanted for your birthday- a brand new green trickster. You loved everyone. Those that knew you- loved you lots! God loved you more, because He took you home to be in Heaven. You are gone, but never forgotten.

Pacheco, Ruben Parker

May 4, 1995 -July 15, 2013

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. SFA.com is Surfers For Autism, a wonderful group working with Cousin Ricky and others. Ruvoo.com is a site established by Ricky’s mother in remembrance of that special bond Ruben and Ricky share.

Story from the Quilt:

Jim was an avid bird watcher. He especially loved hummingbirds and our Alabama native hummingbird, the Ruby-throated Hummingbird, is shown on his quilt square. We put up feeders for the hummers all summer and shared the fun of watching them. We traveled to other parts of the country to see other types of these lovely birds.
