Dear Laker, Thank you for making the hat. I am giving it to my two year old granddaughter, Hazel. Hazel's father died when she was 2 months old and my daughter Ruthi is doing a wonderful job of raising a sweet little girl. Thank you.

Laker Rose,
Your work is incredible. I admire this organization, I admire the ladies who create these beautiful products even more. Thank you for being you and for allowing me to have a piece of your creativity in the form of a beautifully colored bracelet. May God bless you and help you to reach your goals.

Miss Rose,
Such a lovely name for a lovely lady; who not only exceeds in her craftsmanship, but also is a human being whose heart and soul surge with kindness. I hope that you never stop doing what you love, Miss Rose. If you did, the world would be a little less bearable, because it's people like you that make the sun shine in the morning, causes the wind to howl with joy, and the mountains to tremble with happiness. I love my hat. The one with your name on it, Miss Rose. Thank you so much.

My 20 year old son finally has a full time job and purchased gifts for the whole family for Christmas. My gift from him is a beautiful green/blue hat that you made. It is very special to me because he went shopping by himself and thought these hats were a great idea. Just when we think our kids don't know the true meaning of Christmas and giving they surprise us. Thank you and you do beautiful work!

I actually got a hat (the Thomas) from you years ago for Christmas after looking for forever for a ski-style hat for quite a long time. I saw this one and knew it was perfect. My mom bought me another similar style hat that year too, except I hardly ever wear it...because I love the hat you made so much! It's so soft and well made! I love it even more now that I can think of you each time I put it on!
Thank you so much! You're a wonderful lady!

The craftsmanship is wonderful and I personally want to thank you for making it and applaud your work. I wish you and your family the very best. I will wear this hat proudly while thinking about the person who made it -- you.

Dear Laker, I received a hat made by you as a Christmas gift from my sister. It was the first time I had heard of krochet kids and I think it is an amazing organization. My hat is beautiful and it has so much more meaning than just a hat. I will think about you and all the women of Uganda every time I wear it. Thank you for your inspirational story, courage and craft you have been blessed with.

Laker Rose,
I cannot express how excited I was to get my hat in the mail! I found the website through a commercial and was instantly drawn in. I carefully looked through each of their products and chose The Hodge Podge in smoke blue. I do not regret my choice, for the hat is BEAUTIFUL. I want you to know that what you are doing is amazing and I wish you the best of luck! You are strong and beautiful, and I am so lucky to have helped out this wonderful organization. Praying for you as you continue to make hats and save up for your buisness!
God bless!

Today when I went to my mail box, there it was the hat I was waiting for with anticapation of knowing how much my buying this hat would mean to you and yours, so thank You very much. I really love my hat and can't wait to wear it, I was going to go on a trip to New York as I live in South Florida were the weather is warm most of the time. But, now that I am not going to New York I'll wait because the temperature here gets pretty cool so I'll be able to wear my hat with PRIDE. Laker Rose thank you very much, John.
