Reflections >> Letter from Laura Carberry (June 2008)
Dear Otten Family,
Four years ago you had honored your son and myself by awarding me with the Michael J. Otten Memorial Scholarship. This past May I graduated from the University of Tampa and it would not have been accomplished without the financial help from your family. I still remember my Senior Awards Night and receiving the award and how proud it made my parents, especially my father. It was an honor to be able to attend college and experieince a once in a lifetime dream with the help of a true hero. Every summer I was home I made sure to visit the Babylon Memorial 9/11 sight to say thank you to Michael, and discovered that we have the same birthday that I noticed on the stone! Words cannot express my thanks for all your help, but if you ever need help with the outings or fundraisers, please let me know because I am back in New York for Graduate School.
