Jami Got Her Wings

Jami  was welcomed into heaven last evening at 7:00...I just know that heaven is a happier place today...I'll bet she's already teaching a group of ladies how to quilt.

I'll miss you my friend...

Carol, I was thinking of her today. I am glad she no longer suffers, but I know how much she will be missed by her family and friends.

Please accept this hug from Michigan once again. I am very sorry for the loss of your friend.

Condolences,
Sue

What a sweet woman we have been able to get to know through her kindness to our soldiers. I'll keep you, her friend and her family in my prayers.

Darlene said...

Sending many, many hugs! That sewing room is all set up and I know a couple of my friends are sewing with her.

Angie said...

Oh Carol, I'm not sure if my heart fell --- or leaped ---when I saw your Post heading. I am so excited for her...and I'm so sad for all of you who love her and will miss her being there 'in person'. She will always be there, by your sides, in spirit. Sending you hugs and shared tears...

Kate said...

So sorry, Carol...

Janet O. said...

I'm sure she was welcomed with open arms!
She has been a blessing in the lives of so many--as you well know. Through the sorrow we can be grateful for the blessing of knowing such angels while they make earth their abode. Thanks for sharing her with us.

Stitched With Prayer said...

Carol, I know the Angels are rejoicing! But though that and the fact she is no longer in pain, may offer you some comfort, I know it doesn't ease the pain of your loss. I'm so sorry my sweet friend. You, along with Jami's family will be in my thoughts and prayers, along with your mom.
Thank you Carol for sharing Jami's sweetness with us. It is a gift I will always hold dear. Tender hugs...
***Jami is most likely not only teaching the ladies how to quilt, she probably has them organizing a Heavenly 'Guild' already!!! Hugs...

Nancy said...

Such sad news again today. I know that you made the last few weeks of Jami's life happier by sending the troops in to help her fulfill her final goal for soldiers. The world needs more giving, kind and thoughtful women like her. She will be missed. And I agree wholeheartedly with Stitched With a Prayer's comment - no doubt the Heaven's Gate Guild is already recruiting up there!!

Diane said...

Thank you for letting us know. Take care!

Gypsy Quilter said...

Quilt club in heaven, what a wondrous place that must be. I'm sad with you though, it's so hard saying goodbye.

Teresa said...

I am so sorry you have lost a dear friend, but as a dear friend, I know you are thankful her struggle is over. May God give you comfort and peace during this time of loss.

Kris said...

Dearest Carol - I am so sorry for your loss!! Jami was an amazing woman with so much love to offer. Heavenly Father must have needed her to spread some of that love around heaven. She will be missed!! Prayers for you and her family!! Kris

I know you'll miss your friend terribly but I like that she will probably be in heaven teaching others to quilt. I'm so happy that we made her goal of pillowcases.

I'm glad we were able to make her dream of pillow cases come true. I know how happy that made her. Smile when you think of her. What you did for her made her so happy and she knew you loved her.

Kim said...

"She got her wings", reminds me of It's A Wonderful Life, my favorite Christmas story of all time. I'll think of Jami every time I hear the angel bells tinkle this holiday season. Sorry for this loss, Carol.

Carrie P. said...

So sorry to hear about your friend. Isn't nice to know we have a blessed hope? Heaven!

Quilt Hollow said...

She is truly blessed...and she indeed earned her wings!! Through you, we learned of this amazing angel.

Tammy said...

I've been wondering about her and how she was doing. I'm so sorry that you lost your friend, and yet heaven has her now and like you said she's probably teaching them how to quilt. You will meet her again one day. She did so much good while on earth. A big hug your way and prayers for her family.

Stitched With Prayer said...

Carol, Just to let you know you are in my thoughts and prayers. Warm Hugs...

Michele said...

I'm so sorry that you lost such a wonderful friend. You did such a great thing by helping her with her with her cause by collecting so many pillowcases. I'm sure she will be greatly missed by all who knew her. Many hugs to you.

AnnieO said...

So sorry to hear you have lost such a wonderful person from your life. She will be remembered and honored for her passion for veterans and willingness to do whatever she could.

What a difficult week you have had. Thinking of you.

Lisa D. said...

I'm sorry for your loss, Carol.

suz said...

thank you for letting us know about Jami. She was a remarkable woman who made a difference in the lives of everyone who knew her or knew about her.
I'll be keeping she and her family in my thoughts and prayers.
I'm also sending you and your family, specially your Mom, warm thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

NancyNoBlogBlogs said...

Carol, I am very sorry to hear about your loss.

Vivian said...

Sincere sympathy to you and to Jami's family and other friends.
How many of us will be able to truly say that we made a difference in people's lives? Jami did. She made a huge difference, and we're all better for having had even this simple long-distance connection with her, whether reading about her or making pillowcases for her.
Yes, she has wings.

Dirt Road Quilter said...

Oh Carol! I am so sorry to hear of Jami's passing yet I can't help but think of the messege I sent you a while ago. Don't you know that they are celebrating in heaven and cheering, 'She's here!'. I know that your friendship was a blessing to your amazing friend and I pray that God grant you comfort during these difficult days.

Barb said...
