We would like to thank everyone who was involved in the arrangements with our trip to Cancun. We had the trip of a lifetime and created wonderful memories for all of us.

Jack and Jill LSC Foundation-Heidi put everything together and helped us find a vacation that worked for our family. When she called, we thought it was a dream. It was-one that became a reality. What a wonderful thing the foundation does.

AirTran-Thank you for providing the flights to Cancun and back. We found everyone to be friendly and helpful and our flights were on time-or ahead. Before our flight #40 gate C21, from Atlanta to Cancun on Saturday June 26, one person stood out. Darren helped us with paperwork, and when it was time, came, got Patti ,in her wheelchair,and us, and helped us on the plane. He also had a very nice conversation with our son Eli.

Starwood Hotels-Westin Resort and Spa Cancun- Thank you for a spectacular place to stay. Our suite was beyond anything we could have dreamed of, along with the view. The staff was truly friendly and helpful-all of them. Martin Silva and Jorge Garcia had quite a time planned for us during our stay. Jorge took over in making us feel at home and like family. He helped us with all our needs or sent us to the right people. When Eli and I went on an adventure, he stayed with Patti when she was not at the spa with Maggy. Maggy and Patti got along great and had laughs even though Patti does not speak Spanish or Maggy English. Carlos, the Restaurant Captain, made sure our eating experiences were as great as could be.When it was storming and we had trouble fnding a way into the restaurant with Patti in a wheelchair, Jorge and Carlos made it work. Leo, in travel, worked with Jorge to find adventures that fit us.We had a wonderful time at them all. Enedino was our driver, and more. He met us at the airport, took us shopping, and back to the airport. He always called us by name- making us feel at home. When you leave your hotel you usually get a good bye, we got hugs from Jorge and Enedino-what a wonderful feeling.

Because of all of you, for a short time, we got to not forget what is going on in our lives, but put it to the side a little and have a wonderful time together.Thank you from our hearts.

Dan, Patti, and Eli Kautz
