Lost or Stolen Quilts - please contact me if you see them anywhere.

I am asking for your help with this post.  My mother recently moved from Vista, CA to Robinson, IL.  She packed the two quilts I made for her in a box and had it placed in the moving van coming east.  They did not arrive.  Here is the first one, a Boston Commons quilt with a Card Trick border.  it is approximately 100 x 100" and is signed, dated and dedicated on the back.  The dedication reads: "for the most uncommon of mothers, my mother, Ramona." and has a quote embroidered on the back: "oh tell her brief is life but love is long. Alfred Lord Tennyson."  My signature reads "V. B. Allmendinger" and the date is "March 1999."

The second lost quilt is this one, The Old Man's Log Cabin, a Christmas quilt which is signed, dated, dedicated and labeled as "2013 - The Year of the Christmas Quilt." The label on the quilt reads: "this Christmas quilt belongs to Ramona and James Tennison, Oceanside, CA"  My signature reads "V.B. Allmendinger Leiner, Greensburg, PA"

We are heartbroken that these quilts have been lost or stolen but know that they are only (precious) things, that things are not important but the love that goes into them is.  That love goes on.  We would appreciate any help finding them.  If someone does have them or find them and is willing to send them to me, my address is: Ginnie Leiner, 234 Tremont Avenue, Greensburg, PA 15601.  I will happily reimburse you for the postage costs and maybe even make you a quilt to reward your honesty!

Thank you for your help.

This is so terrible! What has the moving company said about this? I am sure your mother is just inconsolable.
