  9. I can sew a quilt each for Jane and John March or a large one for both. Which is preferred?


  10. Do you have addresses for the families that I am working on?

  11. Is Brayden (#13) a boy? If so, I have a quilt already made for him.

  12. I came across this site while looking up info re: the firefighters. I personally know the mother of the youngest firefighter Grant McKee who died.
