    You made me cry. What a wonderful group of women you are. That lady must be someone special. Thank you for being you. We need more people like you!

    The kindness of quilters amazes me-you are all wonderful, and so very kind. Doing such a small thing for this woman might be the nicest thing that has ever happened to her. Thank you for reaching out to another human and bringing joy into her life!!!

    There is definitely a place in heaven for you and your friends. I worked with developmentally handicapped and acquired brain injuries for 16 yrs and I know she appreciates the love you all gave to her. These 2 groups of people do have a very limited income and are also the people who seem to get their funding cut first whenever the 'budget' needs to be fixed. God Bless you and your lady friends.

    She is blessed to have friends like you. How wonderful for you all to do this for her!
    Always in Stitches,

    So blessed in the opportunity of life, the gifts of nature, and the choice to do good to others. I'm thankful for this day.

    Quilters and sewers are a very giving bunch. I am sure that there are many stories like Toni's all over the world. We are all lucky to have found this wonderful family! I am so happy for Toni and your group!

    That's lovely. You will all enjoy the gift together. I'm sure the sewing also keeps her brain working well along with the socializing. Keep having fun together.

    I loved reading about your Act of Kindness. You all are true Christians. I'm sure Toni felt blessed having all you lovely ladies as friends." Angels upon your shoulder", all of you.
