I WAS SADDENED TO LEARN…

I was saddened to learn that the tragic sinking of a whale-watching boat off western Canada has claimed the life of a young man with Down Syndrome. Stephen Thomas, aged 17 – a talented photographer – was with his father, David, who also died, and his mother, Julie, who survived but now has to endure her terrible loss. My heart goes out to her, and to all the family. My condolences to them all.
