Dear Mr. and Mrs. Williams,
I am writing to thank you for coming to the Meadow Highland Games in Richmond Virginia today. My son, Aidan, took third prize in the children's throwing contest - and he had never thrown an axe before. What made this particularly special is that today was the first time he's been well enough to have fun outside of our home in about four months. He has been battling a serious illness this year that made him unable to attend school, play soccer and play outside with his friends. Luckily it turned out to be non life-threatening . . . but it definitely took its toll on his spirits. Today he was able to forget all of that, thanks to your competition. What a fun thing for children to try at the games! I almost cried to see the joy and pride on his face! So thanks again! He's already planning to practice for next year.
