Dear Heather and Captain Billy,
What a great day on the Tuna Fever!  I met up with Jonathon, Trent and Andy when they got back to the cottage yesterday--they were all exhausted but so excited.  I'm attaching some photos, the smile on the kids face says it all.  Thank you just isn't enough to say for making his wish come true but please know that Jonathon and his family will never forget you or his special day on the Tuna Fever.  I am so grateful to both of you--wonderful folks like yourselves, that's what makes the Outer Banks the extraordinary place it is.
Wishing you both all the very best,
Rose McHale, Volunteer Wish Granter, Make-A-Wish Foundation of Eastern NC
