Blankie: October 14, 2004 - November 2, 2008

November 2, 2008

P's Blankie passed away suddenly and without fanfare on Sunday afternoon. Blankie was born on October 14, 2004 at the G House in Sandy, UT. Lovingly handcrafted by P's Grammie Sue, Blankie served very well in all capacities. Nurturer, comforter, vomit catcher and friend are just a few of the ways she will be remembered.

Blankie was a real trooper. She went through approximately 3000 gentle cycles in her lifetime. Towards the later years she suffered through sewing surgery after sewing surgery, fighting for her life each time. Sadly, the multiple facelifts took their toll on Blankie and there just wasn't any more fabric left to give.

Blankie will be laid to rest at the Davis County landfill. No public ceremonies have been planned at this time. In lieu of flowers, Blankie's family asks that donations be made to http://www.quiltsforkids.org/.

I hope you got a replacement blankie before tossing that one in the trash. I know someone who is a sucker for making blankets.
