From the January 4th, 2012 Hunterdon County Democrat, Letters to the Editor regarding the Laptop Donation on Christmas Eve 2011.


GENE HALE Ottsville, Pa.
To the Editor:

On Christmas Eve, members of the Frenchtown Police and Fire departments, along with David and James Cahill of Computers, and certain other anonymous benefactors, arranged to have Santa Claus take time out from his hectic schedule and visit Stephen Scully.

Stephen is a ten-year-old young man afflicted with spinal muscular atrophy. Stephen has been confined to bed and chair his entire life. Santa and his enthusiastic helpers arrived in the biggest, shiniest red fire truck Stephen had ever seen or imagined.

Amidst flashing lights and blaring sirens, Santa presented Stephen with an extravagant gift — a computer with voice recognition software. It is nothing less than a whole new world opened up to someone confined by immobility. In a world where, and in an age when, trouble seems ever-present and goodness seems to have vanished, such a gift as this is an extraordinary act of love and kindness.

My heartfelt thanks to all who participated. I believe your actions are a reflection of God’s grace.

What a wonderful thing to do. Bravo! And God Bless all those Fire, and policemen, along with the two Cahill Fellas! No matter what such a computer actually cost…It’s the huge heartfelt thoughts, and acts of kindness, that are truly priceless. Good for you Stephen! I truly hope your new computer has made your world brighter than you ever dreamed it could be.
