Two Star Blocks I made for a Blogging Friend,
John'aLee's daughter, Tory was to be married a few weeks ago to her Soldier Boy, Chris.
One week before Chris was to leave Afghanistan and return home, Chris was killed. Another Hero's Life sacrificed for FREEDOM.
We Give Honor to you Chris.
Our hearts are heavy for Tory, Tory's family, your mother, your entire family, and all your many friends.
Soft Reds & Blues are colors requested
