This is a letter I received from the Paso Robles library;

Dear Lechuga Family,
A donation was made earlier this year to the Children's Library in your family's name to honor Phillip Lechuga. With that gracious donation, we were able to add the following books to our collection (see below). Special care was taken to find quality titles related to Downs Syndrome, as requested. A nameplate honoring Phillip was placed in each one. I apologize for the delay in getting this letter to you, but wanted to extend my gratitude to you and let you know how the donation was spent.

With Regards,
Kris Bell, Children's Librarian

1,2,3 For You And Me by Meg Girnis

I knew that there was a donation made by Phillips Therapists, I received a card notifying me about it and who did the donation; then I went in and let them know what types of books I would like. So they did a great job in doing this, I'm so pleased. Little Paul and Jordan have already checked out some of the books, and they were so thrilled to KNOW that his name was printed on them! I really appreciate these ladies who did the donation, they are all so very special for doing this.
So if you are interested, check'em out!
