VIP:Richard James spoke up from a crowd at a benefit dinner while President, Bill Clinton was signing autographs, “My girlfriend sends her best and wants to know if you received the handmade cardiac pillow she sent you after your surgery.” Bill Clinton responded, “I still have that pillow. I love that pillow. A lot of people sent me pillows, and that is the only one that was handmade.” Turning to the crowd, he said, “You can’t imagine the pain and insecure feeling you have when you get in a car for the first time (post surgery).

Customer Notes of Thanks:
Thank you again, Tina! Here is John, my son-in-law and his wife, Karen. We are all thrilled with your pillow!
You made a pillow for my sweet Barbara. You used kitty fabric. It was the best money I ever spent. She got to enjoy her pillow for about 2 weeks before she lost her life. She also knew how much love was sent with that pillow. You see I live about 4 hours from her. So I am so thankful she had her pillow from us. Thank you again. I really appreciate how quickly you sent it out. Not knowing she was going to lose her life. Time was/is so precious. Thank you for everything
I wanted thank you for the wonderful pillow you made and sent in time for my major abdominal surgery. I can’t imagine how I would have gotten along without it. It has been nearly 3 weeks since my surgery. I am able to rise in a car, stand up, laugh and cough all with the support of my pillow. Most importantly it allows me to have my sweet Cavalier and Puggle close by for comfort and support.
I will loudly sing your praises to anyway who has major surgery.
“Dear Tina, Thank you for the blessing and comfort you will bring to my friend. The (breast cancer comfort) pillow arrived yesterday, and her surgery is today. Good news is it’s early stage, so no expected chemo, etc. I have enclosed a bit extra to let you know I’m grateful and encourage you to continue blessing others. Fondly, T. Finotchi P.S. I am a massage therapist so the care and comfort of others is of monumental priority to me. I pray for you to be continually blessed with health and wealth.”
