Reflection

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for choosing me as a recipient for your scholarship. . . . It saddens me that dear Holly passed away at a mere 8 years of age and that, in a sense, I am benefiting from her death; however, I am sure she would want me to become a doctor and help other children like her in the future.

Gratitude

Words on paper cannot thank you enough for the three $100 donations made to families in the Napa Infant Preschool Program. Each of these families has at least one child with special needs who is being served in our program and will likely have long-term needs through the educational and medical community.

It is true that Holly's gentle spirit resides in all of us who were blessed to know her and are still blessed to have the memory in our hearts. . . . My deepest thanks for you, the caretakers of Holly's memory so that others will know her.

Scholarship

Being able to gain the training and certification that I need through your scholarship has given me another tool that I can use in helping children become the best that they can be with confidence and self-respect.
