The first letter is from New York.
Through all my illnesses and loneliness, our Lady has never left my side. Every time I turn to her she gives me her gentle touch and helps me get through it all. I am especially dedicated to the Miraculous Medal and carry it with me always. I also like to hand out medals to people in need, who are ill, and during difficult times.
The second letter is from Pennsylvania.
When I was preparing to deploy to Afghanistan with the Army, two friends gave me two gifts that reminded me daily of how our Blessed Mother watches over us. One was a simple old wooden bead rosary that my friend carried while serving as a Marine in Vietnam, and the other was a gold Miraculous Medal that my friend found lying in the parking lot of the armory where I was training. Talk about signs that our Lady wanted to be with me! I prayed a decade or more of the rosary every day and under our Blessed Mother's constant care, I returned home safely to family and friends after a year. I can't thank her enough for her intercession on my behalf. Our Lady of Victory....PRAY FOR US!
