as I type...I just talked to Jami a few minutes ago and they are in Fort Gordon...they arrived yesterday afternoon, checked in at the base and then rested for today. I am just thrilled beyond words...I was very concerned about Jami making that long car trip...8 hours...the most she's ridden in a car since June has been about 1/2 an hour and she's usually exhausted. When we spoke, she sounded FANTASTIC! They had already done "formation" and she and her sweet hubby Thom were introduced to the soldiers that could make it there, and they were headed into the Dwight D. Eisenhower Hospital to spend time with the wounded soldiers. I wish you could have heard her voice. Truly, truly made my week!
Again to all of you who made this possible...thank you from the very bottom of my heart. I was telling Andy on our way back on the plane from Pennsylvania that when I came up with this little idea my hope was to receive maybe 25 pillowcases...my thought was that it would certainly increase the number that Jami could give out and I knew it would lift her spirits. Well, the final count is in and you all are beyond AMAZING! 425 pillowcases from you all are being delivered at this moment...thank you, thank you, thank you! You will never begin to know what this has meant to Jami...and the special notes that you included brightened some of her very darkest days. And from me, you all truly made my dream come true! I will never be able to thank you enough!
