Thank you for taking such great care of C.S. We have deeply appreciated all of the extra work that you have gone to on his behalf. I am told that you even shared part of your lunch with him and hope that we can, in small part, return the favor! These are C.S.’s favorites drawings and hope that you and your daughter will enjoy them as much as he does.
