Thanks teens


To the Editor:

Today, it seems like many things we hear about teenagers are negative. Recently, however, my family and I experienced a wonderful act of kindness by some teenagers that proved this wrong. I feel it is important for these young men and women to be recognized for their act of kindness to our family.

On June 24, our 88-year-old mother, Julianna Kaselitz, a resident of Grosse Pointe Park for over 50 years, passed away. Julianna's granddaughter Kristen Kaselitz, a member of the Grosse Pointe South High School Choir, was contacted by one of the choir members asking Kristen if it would be OK if they paid their respects by singing at her grandmother's funeral service at Star of the Sea.

Kristen Saelens, Natalie Humphry, Anne Marie Nouhan, Andrea Deck, Jimmy Manganello, Austin Chznowski, Danielle Eiskens, Sean Grabowski, Chris Vella, Gabe Camero, Kelly Roney and Kristen Kaselitz, on their own during their summer break, organized and sang "On Eagles Wings" and "You Raise Me Up" for our mother's funeral Mass at Star of the Sea on Monday morning, June 27.

Their beautiful voices come not only from their individual talents but from their hearts.

Our heartfelt thanks go out to these fine men and women for making a difficult time a little less painful by demonstrating this unselfish act of kindness.
