2016 Wheel Chair Recipients
January 14, 2017
Mr. Leonard A. Agrusti
Fidelians of America
219 Manchester Avenue
North Haledon, NJ 07508
Please accept my most sincere and heartfelt thanks for the gift The Fidelians have given my daughter Amelia and I. Because of all of your effort, Amelia’s “Quickie 2” wheel chair has arrived and she’ll be using it every day at school (in classes and therapy sessions) and at home with me for a very long time to come. Attached to this letter is a picture of the moment Amelia first sat down in the chair. She’s pointing to her name written on the tray before the packing tape was taken off. Minutes after this, Amelia’s teachers and I took her out in the school hallway and she reached down with both hands to move the wheels forward, in the right direction–an immediate success. She’ll continue on getting stronger and more independent.
Amelia will be better every day for all of your generosity and support, and I, along with my father Mario Lombardo, will be forever grateful. Thank you Mr. Joseph Geronimo and Mr. Frank Petrelli for your sponsorship which made this possible. Thank you gentlemen (every Fidelian member) for choosing to help Amelia. It’s truly an honor to have met you all. And, thank you Father Mark for your blessed gesture adding to Amelia’s gift out of your own. God bless you Father, and God bless The Fidelians.
I wish you all a very happy and healthy new year.
Very truly yours,
Amelia’s grateful father
