Remembering our fallen

For those of you who followed the saga of the Fallen Star quilt ... my sister-in-law, who lives in Hawaii, received the quilt (and table runner) last week and was thrilled and she really like the 'fallen star' theme (their silent auction is on April 30th).

My brother was home in on R&R from Iraq for 2 weeks ... his Facebook post on Saturday before he left to go back to Iraq.

Torrential rains, day and a half without power, sick family members, and a night huddled in the car like gypsies due to a Tsunami evacuation; one heck of a R&R, but I wouldn't trade the time with my family for anything though.

These guys do so much for us ...

"D" had this video made to support their cause ...



Worth a view ...

All the best

  1. Great Cause! I'm so sorry about your brother...that totally sucks. But it's so true... what could be viewed by most as being horrible, our soldiers learn to look for the good in everything and appreciate every second they spend with their loved ones! Glad he got to come home to see his family for a bit and hope he has a safe return after his deployment.

  2. I second what Jen said. Great cause. Sorry to hear the tsunami made his family visit less enjoyable, but it's something to tell the grandkids one day.
