    KISS?
    I keep reading hoping someone will explain so I don't look like the villiage idiot, but I guess I have to hop aboard the idiot train.

    Thanks everyone, for the most part the manager can be pretty cool, he does have his moments though. I'm cautiously optimistic

    Especially for CantGetNuf and MushyBrain . . .

    This morning, I packed up my wedding dress and the dress I wore for our 25th anniversary and sent it to NICU Helping Hands. Here's the letter I enclosed:

    Dear Folks at NICU Helping Hands -

    Recently, an online friend from a discussion board posted that her son and daughter-in-law had found out that their full-term baby had died in the womb, and he was subsequently stillborn.

    As our discussion board members offered our condolences, one of the members mentioned your organization. I am so grateful that she did.

    My husband and I are celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary this year. Through all the decades and multiple moves, I have packed up my wedding dress, thinking – as we often do – that a daughter or granddaughter might want to wear it someday. Well, that day never arrived, and it likely will not. And yet, I could not just send my dress off to the Goodwill or donate it elsewhere, as I was pretty sure that it would have been tossed into a “reject because it’s so out of style” pile.

    But once I heard of your wonderful organization, I knew that the dress could be useful again . . . that it would be used respectfully, for an honorable purpose. So it is with a few tears, but no sadness that I now send it to you. I am also enclosing the dress I wore 25 years later, as we renewed our wedding vows on our silver anniversary.

    This summer, we will be renewing our vows yet again in honor of our golden anniversary. Who knows . . . you may be receiving yet another dress from me at some point!!!

    May God bless you for what you do. I am sending these dresses with prayers for the yet-unknown families who will need the little burial outfits you make for them.

    Sincerely,
    Punkin, Ellen, CantGetNuf and 14 others like this.
