I don’t know how to begin to thank you all for all of the wonderful and so useful goodies you all sent to us for the troops.  I am sorry it has taken me until now to email you all too.  I was in the States for about 6 weeks to help my Mother and I didn’t get to unbox everything until just now and not exactly sure when the Warehouse brought them to us.  First of all, we all LOVED the picture of you all!!!  It just tickled us so good to get the px!!!  Thank you so much for sending it.  It is so nice to meet you all through your picture.  It is GREAT!!!  And we surely, surely do THANK YOU ALL SO VERY MUCH for all you sent us.  Our cup runneth over with so many wonderful things now that the guys and gals will enjoy.  We truly do appreciate all the food and  snack items.  We only get certain food items from our warehouse and so everything you all sent is VERY much appreciated, everything!!  The water flavoring and all the peanuts and crackers and everything is just perfect and will be enjoyed by many.  I was so excited opening it all up!!!!  THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!!  We also enjoyed all of the lovely card you all sent, we have them sitting out in the lounge on our big table so everyone can read and enjoy them.  Please pass along to C. M. how very much we appreciate and love the pictures that the children drew.  They are precious and we also have them all sitting on the table too.  I just cannot tell you how much we appreciate what all you sent.  It all really makes such a difference to the guys and gals.  One little boy was stuck in the terminal (we are located in the terminal) all day and was behaving very well but he was looking for things to do.  When he saw the car toys he just lit up.  I gave them to him and he was so appreciative.  He went out in the lobby and played with them and even later that day came back and thanked me again for them and I told him that you all had sent them.  He was 9 years old and a real sweetheart…so thank you for cheering him up too.

We got the 2 boxes you all sent for the Warrior Center so our Warehouse guys will pick them up and take them to the Warrior Center tomorrow so they will be so happy to receive your boxes too.

We just so much appreciate every single thing you all sent..the dog and kitty calendar someone will love too.

Thank you all for being so generous and thoughtful to think of the guys and gals.  We all truly appreciate everything you sent for them.

Take good care and many thanks,
