Dear Miss Kovalcik,
Thank you for the letter. Really was great hearing from a friend who I have so much in common with. I appreciate you rooting for the Seahawks and me and hope you continue to do so when we play in the Superbowl!!
I want you to know that I always try my best in everything I do and have faith in you and your twin sister too. Even though we have hearing aids, we can still accomplish our goals and dreams! If you or your family ever (sic) in Seattle, I hope we can get together and play some sports or games!
Derrick L. Coleman Jr.
