November 17, 2010 would have been John’s 24th birthday. On that day, we received an enormously generous contribution to John’s trust by someone who wishes to remain anonymous. The donor simply said, “I have always respected the Lamensdorfs and their devotion to their family. I want to be a force in their effort to create opportunities for those whose dreams are just like John’s dreams.”
We also received so many cards, calls, emails and donations acknowledging John’s birthday from family and friends.
On Thanksgiving, we reveled in our gratitude for all of you who continue to remember John – who he was and who he could have been.
