Thanks for the article "Satterwhite loves his Comets" (Oct. 22, Page 1B). I got to know Clay when my son Ryan played at South Gwinnett. Clay is a wonderful young man and makes me smile every time I see him at Kroger in Loganville and give him a hard time.

We all love Clay, and it was fun always seeing him work hard. As a parent, it makes me feel good that people care enough to do things for guys like Clay. The world needs all its heroes, and Clay is one.

Thanks again for writing such a wonderful story. We hear enough bad stuff in the media these days, it's nice to read a story like this one.
