“I just saw your story on KSDK and it caught my eye because we received one of your gift bags in September from the BJC Wings hospice team.  Our Maverick was born with a fatal genetic abnormality and we had him for 31 wonderful days from 8/22/18 – 9/23/18. The day he was called home was September 23rd; your sweet Gwendolyn’s birthday. That day will always have a special part in our life but I will now think of your daughter and your family’s sweet generosity on that day as well.  While Maverick was here, we celebrated each week as a birthday and I loved hearing about how you are celebrating her birthdays, paying it forward, and bringing cheer to families dealing with illnesses. The cards in the gift bag were so uplifting and the quotes about superheroes were perfect. But really, most importantly, I wanted to thank you and tell you that your gift bags touched our hearts and it was very much appreciated.”

“I just wanted to personally thank you for the birthday mission you had.  Last week, we were delivered one of the September Smile bags! We love our superhero cape.  The cards were so fun from all the kids. Thank you for having such a big heart!”
