a heart for Mary Lou

Here is the heart block I made to send to Mary Lou, whose son died suddenly this morning.
I hope it reassures her that I have her and her family in my thoughts and prayers.
All I know about Sam is what Mary Lou wrote on her post this morning. He was 17 years old, likes music and he would rescue stray cats. He had a huge heart and everyone loved him.
My block is a pieced heart made with fabric I printed which says "a little bird told me you could use a hug today", some red bird fabric, a musical notes print all set on a red heart and then blanket stitched on to a cat themed background. I fussy cut one of the birds and appliqued it onto a little branch.
I hope she likes it.
