An Email that Warms Your Heart

One unexpected bonus to writing a book is the incredible people you meet along the way. I met Pam via an email she recently sent. Please enjoy her comments. I'll add photos of her wonderful Tony soon.

"I just wanted to let you know that I read your book and it was absolutely wonderful!!! Its the only summer reading book my son enjoyed reading and my oldest read it just because she thought it would be interesting and she loved it!
My brother "Tony P" had Downs Syndrome and he was and will always be the light of my family's' life. His favorite words when he was tired and wanted to get away from everybody were "I go home". He is truly home now with Jesus. He succumbed to leukemia on July 27, 2008. He was 27 years old and he was the sweetest, kindest, gentlest and most genuine person I've ever known. I'm glad God blessed me by letting him pass through my life no matter how brief it seemed.
We all still grieve for him but we know he is dearly loved and wrapped up in the arms of Jesus....
Thank you again for writing a book that gives everyone around the world true insight on what it's like to be in the day to day company of a "special one divinely favored by God."
Thank you Pamela Parker Rittenhouse!
