Wrap Them in Love

In memory of...

Sometimes we receive a donation that is made in memory of a loved one who has passed away. This page is a special place to honor those friends and loved ones who have meant so much to us. This is not meant to be a page for sadness, but a place to remember these special people. I'm sure that the reason that their loved ones thought about Wrap Them in Love was because these people would have wanted to help the children if they were able to do that. So, in our sorrow, we mourn them, but we also honor them and remember them for their kind and loving hearts.

John Leslie Mumford

(note from Ellen) I met "Old Pa" several times when visiting his family in Indiana. He was a great supporter of Wrap Them in Love. Even though I met him after his stroke when he could no longer speak, I never had a problem "talking" to him. He loved to sit in on our quilting get togethers and loved to see the quilts that we were making for "our babies". He also loved the cinnamon rolls that I baked while I visited! I asked his daughter-in-law, Becky, to write about him for this page.

So He put his arms around her,
And whispered . . "Come with me"

Brian Berry

Brian Berry, brother of Irene Staker, died in 2001, from pancreatic cancer at the age of 47. He was a high-school drop out who later blew the GED exam off the charts and graduated from the U of Colorado in Colorado Springs with a straight-A average. He loved learning, especially in the area of psychiatry, and got his MS at the UNC at Chapel Hill. Most of his working life was spent as VP of a Pepsi distributor.
Brian was humble, totally irreverent, and had a VERY dry sense of humore. Most of all though, he was caring and generous with all who knew him. The home he shared with his wife, Dotti, was always full of people at holiday times--they had so many friends, and there was always a lot of laughter. His son, Clint Berry, had a son born in October of 2002, and named him Brian Berry to honor his father, whom he loved so much.
Irene still thinks of him every day, he was so special, and misses him. Please Click HERE to see the beautiful quilt that was donated to Wrap Them in Love as a tribute to Brian, the airplanes symbolically carrying his soul to heaven.
