A Letter from Jon Bon JoviMusician

Ladies and Gentlemen!

Tornado!

88 years strong, Mrs. Shriver. God bless you. Forty years of the Special Olympics-what started in your backyard is now a worldwide force to be reckoned with. Think of all the smiles you've brought to all the faces, not only to the athletes, but to the families. Think about the difference that you've made in their lives.

Mrs. Shriver, we're all very honored just to know you. And I want to wish you another 88 happy years and I want to thank you for everything you've done for me and for my family-allowing me to be part of your work with the Special Olympics. Happy Anniversary. Happy Birthday.
