    Othniel had died,
    I knew the name was familiar,
    as one I often saw in your
    community quilt diaries.

    When I looked back at one of them,
    I saw,
    Othniel, cellulitis,
    at the top of the list
    of those who had received quilts already.

    So many near the top of that list,
    such as exmearden,
    are now dead and gone.

    And now another.

    Such is the way of life,
    it eventually ends.

    We continue to comfort
    those who are with us,
    remembering those gone,
    and remembering that it was what we wanted to do,
    to comfort them.

    And that helps us move on,
    to write the next quilt comment,
    and sew the next quilt.

    Thank you,
    again.
