A Texas Woman Honors Our War Heroes with a Needle and Thread

Wise Latina Linked member, Diana Lopez Axthelm loves to sew. In fact, she admits she'd sew around the clock if she didn't have to sleep.

This Plano,Texas mother has been a drapery designer for ten years, but seven years ago she found an important purpose for her sewing skills.

Now parents and spouses of those who have died in the wars of Iraq and Afghanistan have a little special gift from Diana. She says her "Remember Me" pillows are a thank you to the families who have also made the ultimate sacrifice.

Diana makes these pillows from donated uniforms and she pays for a lot of the patches and name tags with her own money.  She has a website if you'd like to contact her:

She's another Wise Latina make a difference in the lives of others!
