What a thoughtful and loving person she must have been. It's too bad that there aren't a few more people like her. From now on, I will try to be a little more like her. I am sure God held a special place in Heaven open for this wonderful person.

Bless that dear lady

Thank heavens for Carol Vore and her love of quilting. I, too, donate quilts to Project Linus at Bloomington, IL. Quilting has been a busy hobby for me for the past 20+ years. Our guild makes small (250) preemie quilts per year to be used at a NICU, plus 36" square quilts to put over the isolettes at night so the babies can adjust to night time darkness during their stay at the NICU. We also make quilts for St. Jude (50-60 per year) children's hospital treatment stays--these quilts go home with St. Jude children.
God has a precious new member of heaven.

What a wonderful way to fill her last days---not being a "woe is me" person. Her family has reason to be proud of their mother and grandmother---not only for the quilt making, but for her focusing on others while her health was declining.

This is such a wonderful story. Thanks
for making it public.

Dealing with cancer is very sad, but
having a caring & productive attitude
is wonderful.

Thanks for this wonderful story.

For those who don't quilt but might knit or crochet, there are many charitable services looking for handcrafted hats, blankets, sweaters, etc. for those in need. Just check out websites for Newborns in Need, Knit for Kids, Prayer Shawl Ministry and many others. Lion Brand Yarn's website has much information also.

Wouldn't this world be a better place if more time and effort was made toward doing good than looking for blame and making judgement?

God has blessed the world with Mrs. Vore and her generosity.

Perhaps the family members or someone at Project Linus can stitch/embroider Carol Vore's initials or name on the quilts and the year 2007. Possibly, in the future someone will reprint this story and some child, teenager, or adult who received one, or a family member might learn how special an effort went into the quilt they possess. Good for her for being so giving and good for her family to carry out her plans, and for making their mother her very own quilt. Bless them all and bless those receiving the quilts, especially.

It's nice to read a human interest story about such a selfless loving person. May God Bless the Vore family in their time of loss. Carol Vore's story reminds me of the country song sung by Dolly Parton of a mothers love for her daughter , while sewing a patch work coat of many colors and sewn with love in every stitch.

This is a great story... I've had family members die of cancer, and I have friends that are dying of it... Its a horrible thing to have to go through, and I hope I never have to deal with it...
