Beach Lovin Grannies

The Beach Lovin Grannies of South Carolina
send all their quilts to Liz and Mac  at one of the military hospitals in Germany.

QOV News from Germany

The QOV Ceremony today was really wonderful. Thirty-three Soldiers were
presented with your beautiful quilts. The Garrison Commander, Deputy
Garrison Commander and several other "big wigs" came to honor our war
heroes. The ladies from the Chapel brought cakes, pies and other goodies
for a reception afterwards. 

The Soldiers were in disbelief that y'all made the quilts for them. At least 10 of them came up to me at the reception and asked me to send their thanks. All of the Soldiers who talked to me asked how y'all made the quilts and I explained how quilts are made. I think they were all overwhelmed at how beautiful the quilts were. The Garrison Commander said that his mother used to quilt but she never made anything as beautiful as y'all made.

I can't thank you all enough for all of the beautiful quilts you've sent
for our Soldiers. Every single one of your quilts has been presented to
the most deserving Soldiers. My husband, Mac, had a smaller QOV Ceremony
about a month ago. All of the Soldiers who received those quilts have mild
to severe traumatic brain injuries. Mac's team of doctors, physical
therapists, etc. work hard to help rehabilitate each Soldier. Mac has seen
tremendous breakthroughs with each of those Soldiers after they received
their QOVs. So again, thank you so much for all you do for the Soldiers in

I'll talk to you again soon,
