can you help?

If you read Amy's blog you will have heard the terribly sad news that her husband has passed away after battling terminal cancer.
Amy is one of the best people in the world. She is wicked in her humour, even during times when most people would have curled up into a ball and refused to continue on. I can't express enough how much I love and respect and admire her. Both as a quilter and as a friend.
Sarah and I were talking about what we could do to help, short of getting on a plane and flying over (which isn't really practical, let's face it) and in lieu of a real hug we thought a quilted one would probably show her how important she is to us.

Would you help?

Amy has followed my blog since I started it and hers is always so inspiring! The least I can do is join in on this for her.

Yes.
My great uncle passed away last night, peacefully in his sleep surrounded by his wife and daughters, grandchildren and great grandchildren. He lived his 93 years on this earth to the fullest. Not all of us are this lucky. I'll help.

Has anything ever bothered you in life? Do you
have any problem you need to solve? A pending
court case you want to resolve in your favor?
Health, relationship and finance. Welcome to
the world of miracles and wonders, there are
supernatural treasure and power to liberate
mankind from all afflictions. Why cant you live a
life of your dream? Why must you work so hard
and yet earn so little? Why cant you be happy
with the one you love and desire or why cant the
one you love reciprocate and appreciate that
love? Why would the doctor tell you there is no
solution or cure to your problems? Why would
your lawyer say you stand no chance, that your
case is hopeless? Have you been cheated by
anyone or those owing you money refuse to pay
back? Do you need a rapid job promotion in
your place of work? You want to venture into
politics? Now I understand certain things are
hard to believe and comprehend, but all I ask
from you is only 7 days and if you will follow my
instructions and use the items you will receive, I
promise your life will never be the same
again.If you find no relevance in the help I offer
I solemnly appeals do not be vindictive and go
in peace. And if your intentions are to take
advantage of the powerful nature of our items
for the purpose of evil, I will not have any
business with you please be advised. May
angels guide you. just contact this man
