Thank you for bringing back my Ski buddy!

A US father sent us this heartwarming e-mail. He decided to stay anonymous. We hope that he’ll be pleased to read his story in our blog as much as we were when we read it from him.
Hi Sandra,
we live along the Mississippi River in Illinois, USA and I currently do some volunteer ski-patrol work at a small local hill. I have a story for you regarding your film.
Past weekend my daughter was in town and from the time she was a little girl until she left to go to college, she was always tagging along beside me when I was out skiing/patrolling.  As time went by, she very rarely went with me in the past 10 to 12 years. The last time was about 3 years ago.  As luck would have it, I started to watch BETWEEN this past Friday and she wondered by and stopped down to watch with me. When done watching, she remarked how cool it was to see and then asked if she could go out with me for my patrol shift on Sunday afternoon and evening. So off we went yesterday.
On about our third or fourth lap -I did mention that this was a very small local hill, where i do patrolling, didn’t I?- she told me what a wonderful time she was having and did realize how much she missed being on skis and with me. So at the end of the night when we drove back home, she said, that before the season ends she would love to ski with me again.
So I want to thank you for your wonderful work and for bringing my little ski buddy back to me.
