Patrick the Pillow

Anyone who knows about Patrick knows how truly heartbreaking this is.

Rest in Peace

1935- 2010

(Yes, it is that old.)

For those who do not know about Patrick…it is Chris’s pillow, given to him by his mother when he was a wee child. The feathers in the pillow were hand plucked by our Granny when she was young. He was almost thrown away at the beginning of our marriage because I knew it just had to be full of mites (which I am sure he was considering how old he was) and I didn’t want it in our bed. I’m glad we didn’t get rid of him. But now, four pillowcases later, we can no longer save him. Goodbye, old friend.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the “Find Chris a New Pillow Friend” fund.

    I had no idea that Chris had a pillow that old. Wow, I can see why you wouldn’t want it on your bed. Maybe you can put in in storage or donate it to a museum. 🙂

    oh sad day! We are so curious what happened to it though…you never said why/how it died.
