Heartwarming Letter

Luca, 7th grade SEA student, John Adams Middle School, Santa Monica
Here are excerpts of a note to Ellen Shane, Executive Director of the SEA Program from Luca's mom:

Dear Ellen,
I want to emphatically tell you that my son Luca absolutely loves your program and he is benefitting so much from it.  Courtney (his mentor) is EXACTLY what he needed (thank you for picking her out especially for him).
As an aside, I drove through Malibu recently and saw a street called Emily Shane -- and I immediately thought of you and your family.  You have done so much to keep your daughter's spirit alive -- and turn your energies toward helping a community full of children. 
Thank you for your service -- and for helping my son.
