More thanks

To Marine Corps Kids,

Thank you for the baby quilt, hat, and booties! It was such a wonderful surprise when my husband came home with these handmade gifts. We've only just moved to CA and don't know many people yet (we don't live on base) so your gifts were heart warming and very special to myself and my husband.

Thank you,

Thank you from the Benz family
