    It was an amazing day of song & stories honoring Michael Litfin. He was a mentor to thousands of Palo Alto youth during his 30+ year tenure at the Children's Theater.

    Michael, you will be missed.

    The program was a wonderful tribute to Michael and the entire PACT staff. Joe Simitian's loving eulogy was heartfelt and deserving of the standing ovation it received. Thanks to all the volunteers who allowed us to come together to celebrate this very special man.
