    Daddy pillowcases

    Our son is deployed to Afghanistan, his wife Christy saw the daddy pillows on line. She asked me to make pillow cases for Gavin and Julia, so daddy would be there with them every night while gone. When they saw them they each laid right next to him with a smile and a hug. Christy and I also felt Andy will need a hug from his kids so we made one for him with his beautiful children. Asking for prayers for this wonderful family and all deployed soldiers and their families. Thanks.

    What a lovely idea.....Yes...and my thoughts are with all who are serving their countries (and their loved ones)...seems there is more need for their service now, than ever....may they all come home safe and sound.

    How absolutely adorable. It must be so difficult with the young ones missing their Daddy.

    You will all be in my thoughts. You didn't say, but i hope his tour will be over soon.
    As a Mom who has been where you are - I have a sense for your feelings. Please pass along our deepest thanks to your son for his service - and your daughter-in-law & grand-kids for theirs. We all know that the families "serve" in their own way as well.
    Of all the things i've lost, i miss my mind the most.

    what a wonderful idea.
    I bet that was the best gift ever.

    When my sister's wife went into the hospital with leukemia, i had the boy color a pillowcase for her. She had it with her when she died. I felt it was important to the boys to do that.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    May God walk with the whole family during his deployment and thank him for his service to our country.
    The pillow cases are such a great idea. One of my grandsons just returned from Afghanistan, I was so happy to see
    him return safe and sound..... Prayers for your son's safety.

    Love that idea! Prayers, yes, for your family and all who are serving. We are retired Navy. I understand being without a Dad in the house and having young children.
