PAINESVILLE TOWNSHIP, OH (WOIO) - Two local sisters are helping families of fallen soldiers by creating red, white and blue crocheted afghans and matching pillows.

The five foot blanket and pillow ensemble are embedded with a photo of the fallen soldier  and are hand delivered to grieving family members.

Karen Vidmar and her sister Sharon Beebe refuse to accept any payment for the patriotic treasures which cost about one-hundred to make.

The women say they felt they had to do something for the families who've lost a son or daughter to war.
