We lost one of our QOV'ers last week. She wasn't just a QOV'er though - she was an amazing mom, grandma, and most recently a Great Grandma. Her funeral was quite amazing. One of the things that was said was how much she wanted her family to remember her. The girls all told her "Mom - we have your quilts, your curtains, your recipes, your love..." and it made me think too - this amazing Woman has been helping with Quilts of Valor for at least 10 years.
The quick math and knowing what all she does - means that there are at least 300 Veterans who also get to have a little bit of Janet Love in their lives too. Pretty amazing isn't it? Say a prayer for Janet G's family if you think of it. They are suffering quite a loss.
The first three quilts today
The two on the left were made with Block Drive Blocks and Quilted by Margaret R in Ft Collins
