Remembering Rebecca Lee Koborie - Sept 5

www.unitedinmemory.net put together an interesting project - creating quilts.

The United in Memory 9/11 Victims Memorial Quilt™, Inc. is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to keep alive the memories of the victims of September 11, 2001 through the United in Memory 9/11 Victims Memorial Quilt™.

This organization is committed to honoring the victims and comforting the world by making the quilt available for public viewing throughout the nation and around the world.

This organization also strives to honor with courage and compassion the thousands of surviving families, those who risked their lives to save others, and those who supported the United States of America in its darkest hours. May their lives serve as a healing balm to our wounded spirits and as eternal beacons, reaffirming our respect for life and freedom and inspiring an end to hatred, bigotry, ignorance, and intolerance.

The quilt will be exhibited in Staten Island, NY Sept. 9-11 and in Radnor, PA Sept. 15-17.

Here's a link to the quilt for Rebecca Lee Koborie.

I'm going to try and get permission to post a photo of the quilt on the site, but please click on the link and take a look - it's quite beautiful.

If you knew Rebecca, or had some connection and would like to contact me with personal stories or anecdotes, please email me at lasthome@gmail.com. I'd especially love to hear from family members and friends who can tell me more about her musical interests and history with music.
