John's Quilt Project: Complete! Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First off... I need to say my 'thank yous' to the people that helped make this possible. I tried to keep track of all the donations that came in as best as I could. But, if I forget someone please let me know and accept my sincere apology.
To those who donated: I can't tell you how much it means to me and John's family the amount of support we have gotten since we lost John. For me, this project means a whole lot more than you think. I wanted to make sure that everyone in the family had a piece of him... something to remember him by... and something that could also be of use. I have been sleeping with my quilt since I have gotten it. Each piece of clothing I used on each quilt had their own signifigance and special meaning. I can picture John wearing these clothes... sometimes over and over in a week. Living in the pajama pants and hoodies... and I am so glad they aren't stuffed in boxes or given away.They will remain a memory that we can keep forever.
