If it isn't too late I would love it if you could make me 3 ribbons. I hope that isnt too many to ask for. Myself, my sons girlfriend & his grandmother all would like them. I will compensate you just let me know the cost. You are wonderful to do this, what a task to take on. My sons name is Hyatt Ship 10 Div 154. Thank you so much, Deena
Julie, I would love for you to make a ribbon for me (and one for my mom). My SR is Cressman division 260. I too would be willing to pay you for the material & time. Please let me know the details of the expense. Thanks a bunch. Karen
He told me about it in his last letter. He explained what time he has to leave on Saturday morning so I can bring his cell phone and laptop to the airport before his flight leaves.
He also told his girlfriend and she happens to be our neighbor and my daughters friend as well.
Yes I am anxiously awaiting PIR, however just found out my son will be a grad and go and will be leaving Saturday morning. Need to share my few hours on friday with his girlfriend.
Its a good thing I really like her.
