Hello to all of you --
I am so sorry that it has taken me so long to post a note thanking everyone -- for the BEAUTIFUL quilts that we received several weeks ago -- and for the many heartfelt wishes and prayers for Jack's recovery. The quilts have been such a wonderful uplifting gift to us - we keep them in the bedroom where Jack has his recliner and I have a rocking chair -- when we are home, I often sit in there with Jack and we talk, read, watch tv, sew (me, not him!), and enjoy each other's company. The grandkids have been over a couple times for short periods and snuggle under their quilt -- they are such fun to watch.
When I read all of the notes from those who worked on the quilts, I had to do several starts and stops over a couple of weeks -- the notes just kept bringing tears to my eyes. Sometimes it is hard to believe how fortunate we are to have so many people who care so much. We are so thankful for the support we have received over the past six months - it has all been needed and welcomed. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I cannot believe how generous all of have been with your time and your energy - wow! Quilters are just the best - in so many ways. I should know better, but you continue to AMAZE me!
I am also very appreciative of all of the notes that you all have posted here. Your words of encouragement have meant so much to me. Jack is doing well, considering what he has been through. He still has a tall mountain to climb, after losing a hundred pounds, but he continues to gain strength and has maintained an incredibly positive outlook on life. Would that we all had his constitution - the world would be a brighter place to live! I have shared many of your words, stories, prayers, and hopes with him - and he sends his thanks and appreciation as well.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. You are loved by both of us for your generous hearts and souls!
Sue and Jack
