I had the great pleasure of meeting Mr. Sendak, when I was Mayor of Cambridge and we were on the same program at MIT. We were sitting behind the stage waiting be introduced. It was a great opportunity just to speak with him, he was so gracious and a joy to be with. That day he brought with him Harriet Beatrice Potter's walking stick, which he was given has a gift by Harriet's husband, just to comfort him --- because he was shy.

I want to thank him again for what he did for many children and others to get them excited about reading.

He will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Sincerely,

Michael Sullivan
