"Not a day goes by that I don't remember Jeremy. He was an amazing person. Always so fun. It has been five years and seems like yesterday. When he was killed it left a hole in my life. I miss him just as much today as then. My only comfort came from the fact that he was doing what he wanted. He was serving. He was the love of my life. He will forever be missed."
Lacey Tindle of Springfield, MO

"I never want to forget the sacrifices of so many young men and women. I am so proud it makes me cry. I understand in theory only that war is a part of human nature but so is love and caring. I wish I could take the families pain away but I can't. I am committed to loving ALL people, myself and our environment. I am committed to working on my happiness everyday because so many have died for my freedom to live my life. Thank you is not enough but it is all I have. All my love and respect. ogersteiner@yahoo.com

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!
