"Thank you from the bottom of my heart for this beautiful gift. It is people like you that make the time away from our loved ones a little less painful. This quilt will keep me warm over the next few months until I return home. I look forward to giving it to my son when I return home as I know he will love it just as much as I do. Thank you."
He also included a photo of himself with the quilt but I can't publish that without his permission nor will I name him but his words say it all. The fact that we are prepared to make a gift of a quilt to a soldier who is far from home means that we are supporting them, it means that they are valued and not forgotten.
Have a great day and until next time......happy stitching!
