I have already sent a card out from Layers of Hope - Quilting 911, if you would like to send one as well, please do.
I also need 2 quilters to step up and make quilts for Momma Kay's sister and son who are both still working in the profession as a 911 professional and state trooper.
I know I ask so much of you, but I also know if you do nothing more than keep posting our needs, post our link on your blog, FB page, take our information to your quilting guilds, that we can get the word out.
My name is Marty Crum. I am a dispatcher for Lawrence County
911 in Lawrenceburg, TN. I am requesting support on behalf of my agency
due to the passing of one of our dispatchers, Pricilla Kay Ellis, known
as Momma Kay to those she served with.
Momma Kay had been sick for a only a short time, and was
admitted to the hospital just last month. Initially, she was diagnosed
as having gallstones and a large mass over her pancreas. Doctors finally
determined that the mass was stage four cancer and that there was
nothing else that they could do for her. Momma Kay wanted to live out
her remaining days at home. She came home on April 30th and a short
three weeks later, she passed. Momma Kay was laid to rest on Sunday, May
Kay's sister, Carolyn Gist, is also a dispatcher with our agency,
and her son, Stephen Ellis, is a trooper with the Tennessee Highway
Patrol. Please keep our agency in your thoughts and prayers during this
Send a card of condolence: (they will be shared with dispatch and the family)
