I thought I would share this letter that was received from one of our State Reps. Nicole doesn't quite understand what an honor this is but she does want to take everything to school to show everyone. As soon as we get a case for the flag, she will be taking the flag, certificate and the following letter (we framed this for her).

Mr. & Mrs. Keith and Laura ...
Dear Keith and Laura:
Last November, I had a flag flown over the State Capitol in remembrance of your daughter Tina's birthday. I planned to give you the flag to keep for your granddaughter Nicole the next week (first week of December of 2007). I put the flag and certificate in my home office with every intent of delivering them. Then, the holidays came and drove it out of my mind. The clutter of my home office covered the flag on my desk.
Last weekend, I found the flag and the certificate in my office and realized my mistake. I am sorry that it has taken so long for me to give these things to you, but please find them enclosed.
Once again, I am so sorry for your loss. I am also sorry for Nicole's loss of her mother at such a painfully early age. I hope that she is adjusting to the tragic loss of her mother.
Please know that I will keep Tina in mind if the Legislature ever considers any proposals to help fund research or better cover treatment of epilepsy patients.
