Your father and I are so proud of you! When you were younger, we never imagined that you would become so famous and receive such honors. We often see you and your name in the papers and magazines and on television - even after the excitement on July 4. We hear your name on the radio. Your movies that we see on the Pathfinder Web Site are marvelous!
You have probably been too busy to keep track of things. So, here are some of the special "firsts" and honors that have been bestowed on you.
We enjoy your letters and are pleased that you are having such an interesting time on Mars. Keep up the good work! We are bursting with pride!!
P.S. We hope you receive this letter because communications have been rather poor lately.
