Before their demonstration began, Giachino presented Lamb with a copy of the thank you letter she wrote to him when she was a fifth grader at Marion Springs in 1989. “I couldn’t believe that he still had that,” Lamb said. “I didn’t think people kept stuff like that.” Giachino said people aren’t sure why he keeps the letters, but he has a simple explanation. “They’re kind of keepsake, why wouldn’t I keep those letters,” Giachino said. Lamb was not only returned her own letter, but she was also able to look through her classmates letters. “Of course, she was very much amused by the fact that I have those letters,” Giachino said. “She enjoyed looking through them.”
