Letter Of Thanks

“Dear America Cares,

When I lost my little boy in Iraq, my life stopped. I lost my job and just about
everything else. I was so weak and so hurt. I felt like I was in this alone and no one in
the world cares.

When I received your package – I was sitting at the kitchen table crying, hurting,
sinking. It was the day before my birthday when the mail man delivered your package. I
canʼt tell you how uplifted you made me that day. Somehow I felt that my son was
showing me that heʼs making sure Iʼm being taken care of (as he always did).

I read the book not expecting any comfort to come from it – only that someone
cared enough to try. “Well” I canʼt tell you how much relief it gave me. I hurt because I
never got to say so many things. I never realized that he didnʼt get to say so many
things either. Thank you for that comfort. I am greatfull for any second or minute that I
can feel comfort.

Your gift was beautiful. Everything was so meaningful. With dears dripping down
my face, I made a cup of tea – lit the candle, wrapped myself in the blanket and read the
book of course wearing the beautiful bracelet (that I keep in my curio cabinet). The
comfort that I felt was unbelievable! Thank you! Somehow I felt my son sent those
things to me to give me strength and a different insight. Thank you!! God Bless you all
you have no idea how much you have helped me just by knowing that someone out
their knows Iʼm here and remembers my pain. Thank you. The name of your
organization is great. For so long Iʼve felt that America doesnʼt care and it was all for
nothing – and that makes me crazy! Thank you again."
