LEST THEY BE FORGOTTEN As a child, I was fascinated by very old large framed pictures of two beautiful little children about six months old which hung on the walls of my grandfather's home. No one ever talked about them but when I asked and I often did, I was told that that they were Poppy's first two children who died when they were small. Poppy never spoke of them at all. And then I grew up, got married and had children of my own. And lost a child of my own and I still remembered Poppy's children. My children grew older and I realized one of my dreams and became a nurse. Still remembering those children as well as my own. Then I became a quilter and felt a need to begin creating family story quilts. To date I have made four story quilts and Donald and Gladys is one of the stories. At the turn of these twentieth century, the death of children due to the illnesses childhood was a heartbreaking and all too common occurrence. My grandparents, Belle and John Slattery stood helplessly by as illness took their first two children. Their first child, Donald, was a healthy little boy when he became ill with typhoid fever. There were no "miracle drugs" in 1901 when he died. Today this illness is prevented by the chlorination of drinking water. The same month that they buried Donald, Belle became pregnant with their second child, Gladys. Once again, Gladys was a happy and healthy 9 month old when illness struck again. Her illness was spinal meningitis. Once again parents and doctor stood by helplessly in 1903. Today, this illness is treated with antibiotics. Belle and John did have 6 more children who survived childhood illness and lived long lives. Look at their sweet little faces, just I did. Now I'm glad I have the medium of quilts to tell their story. They did not live in vain.
