I am Shawn's mom, and I absolutely love how this story was written and the pictures...we so, so appreciate Norbert von der Groeben and Sue Dremann sharing this story. Our family really enjoyed getting to spend time with both of you! Our family has loved living here in Palo Alto and although we are terribly homesick..I know that when we go home to Alaska we are going to miss being here. Thank you again for running Shawn's story...he really is a wonderful boy (of course, I may be a little biased)
With our love and appreciation...The Stockwell Family
