Dear Eunice

What a great moment for me, my son, the world. What you have made possible for so many people defies all reason!

Whatever part I played in writing laws would never have happened has you not set a stage that up to you had never been contemplated.

Sonny just finished the Connecticut Special Olympics swimming last night. According to him he was second place, fifth place & last. Most importantly he felt great about himself.

Well you're first place in my book so have one on me in celebration of the past & the future.

Lowell Weicker, Jr.
