Gold Star Mothers,

Just wanted to let you know that we received the three boxes of toiletries and food treats from you and wanted to send an acknowledgement, our appreciation and deepest gratitude for your thoughtfulness. It cheered the Soldiers here at —– Hospital immensely. Being away from family is difficult, especially during special occasions or holidays, but it’s great knowing that people are thinking about us and keeping us in prayer.

Thank you for your kindness, heartfelt thoughts, and generosity. We’ve hung the card in the hospital foyer for others to read.
