Mourning Mom Sews Quilts for Veterans

January 2004    The Eagle-Tribune

HAVERHILL- The day before he died, Barbara O’Neill’s son called and told her how cold and dark it was at night in Afghanistan.

She was sewing a quilt for him then, but put it away unfinished after the news came. Now, she is filling her days with a new purpose. She is giving warmth, if not to her son, then to the people he most admired – the veterans of Haverhill.
