Review for Wreaths Across America, Columbia Falls, ME, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Wreaths Across America has brought more love and joy into my life that.....there are no words to describe it. It truly is a blessing that is indescribable. The joy from working on this program all year long, and to see the wreaths roll in on the trucks from Maine.....makes my heart throb. To know that the drivers have carried my heart in the back of their trailers is a joy unmatchable. After the rush of the unload, and to be able to lay wreaths on Saturday to honor our fallen heroes that are laid to rest at the Ft Sam National Cemetery, is a blessing no one can put into words. At the end of the day, my children and family and I lay my husbands wreath, (and to be able to continue to honor that precious man).....and the joy of the year comes in full circle.......my precious Jim took my heart with him when God took him home, but to honor him at Christmas time is a joy that I can not put into words. WAA thrills my heart and to hear the stories of family members that have been helping us is a huge joy!!!!! You have to lay your first wreath to know the love and joy of this program. WAA is ABSOLUTELY my heart!!!!!!

I did not know about WAA until I lost my precious husband in 2008. Jim was and is my heart!!!! I wanted to know all about this program and in 2009, God laid the program right in my lap, and it has been a blessing I can not describe since that day. To work all year long on a program to honor our fallen heroes and veterans that are laid to rest in a National cemetery is a blessing by itself. But to be able to part of a program that brings almost 4000 people together that have broken and heavy hearts from the loss of a loved one that was so dear, and see the love in a crowd that big...thrills your heart and everyone knows that we are all there as a "huge family" to remember our loved ones, honor their memory and teach our children that everything that we love to do everyday has a price. When the children come out in force it is a joy that thrills my heart. There are so many wonderful memories from the past 4 years, that only comes from love and support of our fallen. WAA is a program that can not be described in few words......but WOW.....blessing.....thanks......love.......sharing.....tribute.... diginity..... honor.......memories.......all come to mind. Thank you to the Worcester family for starting this program. It is definitely a program of LOVE!!!!!!!
