Sgt Rhys Klasno Memorial Quilt

Sgt Rhys Klasno Memorial QuiltIn late February, 2009 Michael and I attended the California Gold Star Families event at the marines’ Memorial Club in San Francisco . For that event Michael & I made a “Life Quilt” to celebrate Rhys’ short but honorable life.

We have been asked to post the pictures of the memorial quilt. Since there is a story behind it I decided to make a special page just for the quilt. Quilts like this one seem to take on a life of their own, because each picture is a chapter in Rhys’ life, even the t-shirts we used in the design all have their own story. I hope you enjoy it and if we ever meet I would love to share with you the stories behind the pictures.

  1. LOVE was interwoven throught the brave and honorable life of Rhys – – and also with every stitch of that beautiful quilt.

    Our family’s deepest condolences and respect go out to each of you who continue to honor the memory of such a wonderful Son, Husband and young Father.

    May the Almighty Father fill your hearts with peace and joy until that happy day when you will all be reunited in God’s triumphant kingdom.

    May the Angels watch over his sweet Eevie and beautiful wife and keep them both safely throughout their lives.

    What a handsome son! We cannot thank you enough for sharing the best part of yourselves with our Country.

    Affectionately in Christ,
