10 Minute Block - Michael Neal Jr 10 Minute Block – Michael Neal Jr
By: Kelly Kreft,
Colorado, USA

I know this isn’t fancy, but a lot of love went into making this. Michael served our country and he died shortly after returning home. His mom was a classmate of mine so I made this for her. It gives her comfort to curl up in this. God Bless our Veterans, Past, Present and Future. Never forgotten.
