I am writing to thank you on behalf of the board for the wonderful article you wrote about Carlo, his life, and work [“Carlo Pittore’s last round?” May 2009]. Thank you for giving Carlo, the foundation, and our live historic event so much coverage and attention.
Thanks to you, many people heard and read about our endeavors and learned about Carlo, some for the first time. Because you spent so much time working with people whose lives intersected with his to gather information, stories and details, your written account and remarks possess genuine sensitivity, noteworthy efforts, and solid journalism. Our event was a huge success, and made even brighter with the article to point people to.
Thank you for your spirit and thoughtfulness.
