Charlene A. Hood: 12/21/1965 - 4/5/2010


Dear Heidi,

My family would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the wonderful vacation that the Jack and Jill Foundation provided for us. I cannot tell you how important this trip was to us. We had a wonderful time in Palm Beach. The weather was so amazing in Florida that we hated to come home.

AirTran was amazing. Thank you to the staff and stewardesses who made it such a smooth flight. It was the boys’ first time on a plane and they loved it.

I want to give a special thanks to the Ritz Carlton staff, especially to Jon and Liz, who spent so much time with the boys and went out of their way to make this trip as special as possible. They were truly amazing, even running out for mozzarella cheese sticks for Charlene when one of the restaurants didn’t have them. We had a great time getting massages and the boys had a great time riding jet skis, taking surfing lessons, and playing on the beach. The food was wonderful and it really did wonders for Charlene; she has been eating French toast every day since we got home.

Once again, I can’t tell you how much we appreciated this trip. Thank you to all who made this trip possible. We will never forget it. You will be a part of our treasured memories always.

With much thanks,

The Hood Family
