"Re: PFC Travis J Grigg

Hello,
I represent PRAYER SHAWLS 4 FALLEN SOLDIERS (PS4FS), an organization that since October 2007 has sent over 2,800 prayer shawls to military families who have lost a loved one. We are an organization of over 240 groups from all over the country. We make every effort to reach families even when post cards are returned after they have moved. Would you kindly send me a contact email/address so that we may send a loving hand-made prayer shawl to the family? Thank you!

"I am sending you my special angel
On the wings of pure love
One of exquisite beauty
From Heaven above.

I am sending her to you
Just so you will know
I care so much about you
And wanted to tell you so.

I have called upon my angel
And sending her to you
To comfort, love and guide
In everything you do.

Her soft wings will gather
Close around your soul
When you feel that touch
From “no where”
Then you will know.

She has promised to protect you
To Keep you safe from harm
To take away the dark fears
To make your heart light and warm

Trust in your “angel”
You will feel her all around
In your time of loneliness
Is when she will be found.

Gone – but not forgotten.
Thank you for sharing your marine with us,
and for the sacrifice made by you and your family on our behalf.

Proud mom of Lcpl Alex
Currently serving in Iraq"
