Nelson's Thank You for His New Computer

Up until one special day in Spring, Nelson was typically seen in the main library at Cedar Village, a retirement community located in Mason, Ohio everyday shortly after lunch to surf the web.

On this particular day, Nelson was surprised with a brand new computer which was made possible by the generosity of donors through the “Making Dreams Come True” initiative. Below is the thank you letter from Nelson. Enjoy!


Dear Friends from Making Dreams Come True,

 I would like to thank you for the wonderful Dell computer. The computer and I have become inseparable. I spend a lot of time with the computer surfing the internet or playing games. The way the computer is set up, it can give your health information or take you to a faraway land. I particularly love to play solitaire on the computer. It also allows me to keep in touch with friends and relatives. I had a computer before coming to Cedar Village, but it was sold when I became a permanent resident. It had been my dream to get another one for 2 years.  Needless to say, I am very grateful to have my own computer, let alone a Dell computer.  Again thank you from the bottom of my heart for your most gracious gift.

Yours truly,
