My friend Chris called me last Friday and said in a tiny voice "Lorry--my baby girl died yesterday." Her baby girl was Julie who was 33 and a single parent who fought a valiant fight for 21 months against invasive brain cancer.

She had her affairs in order and her sister Sherry has custody of her children now. Kristoper is 12 and Karlee is 7. I want to make them comfortghans to show them that people care about their loss and what they have gone through living with their Momma who was dying.

Kristoper likes Orange, yellow and red. Karlee likes pinks, purple and white.

I would like 7" squares and maybe a card or bit of encouragement to give them. This has just left me so sad. My heart is heavy. I was thinking what can I do to help these kids? And thought--the Crochetville family will help me out!

I haven't had to deal with children this young who have lost a parent.

Thanks in advance to all you wonderful people!!! (You know who you are!)

God bless those babies! I will work on squares to send right away. My own sons' father passed away 6 years ago in June.

How very sad, so sorry for them. How soon do you need the squares? What yarn 4 ply, a particular brand?

Good old worsted weight. I use Red Heart and Bernat a lot. Thanks for all the help, ladies! This has really been hard for us to deal with.

I can't even imagine. Likewise it will take me a couple weeks to get some made but I will do my best.
