  5. Sandra & Matthew,
    Congratulations! and Thank you for bringing back memories when I chaperoned for the Special Olympic’s throughout my college years. I met such wonderful people and I am sure Matthew would have been one of them had he participated in our local games all the way over here on the East coast. I love the way Matthew celebrates! Yeah, Matthew!

  6. I love the way he celebrates, too! Thank you Connie.
