I have two accually …………. one is the first time Tie was on Coaches corner with Grapes . You could see the pride in Ties face that he had now made the big time. Grapes was hugging him and saying how good Tie is as a person and all around player……..Tie is a proud man and you could see it in him that day. I was also proud as a leaf fan.

On Friday, December 23rd, 2005, Lucas Braun of Wingham and his family experienced the power of a wish come true. Lucas’ wish was the 500th to be granted by the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Southwestern Ontario, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.
Hi. I just wanted to send you a message and thank you on behalf of our Atom B hockey team for donating the tie domi autographed jersey and picture. (through gary langfield ) It was a major part of our fundraising efforts and these funds were well spent as we used a portion of it for our entry in to the Bell Capital Cup tournament in Ottawa (the largest organized minor hockey tournament in the world).
I want to thank you for making my son Luke’s wish come true! We were in Toronto to meet with you and your teammates on December 23rd, 2005. You met with Luke and our whole family after your game against the Boston Bruins. I have been meaning to write to let you know how much we appreciate the time you took with Luke to make his wish so special. Taking him to the back room to meet some of the other players was so kind of you. Luke has not stopped talking about his wish since Christmas and about how kind you and your teammates were to him.
I just came across your website and signed the guestbook. I explained in that letter that my son Hunter, like every good Canadian hockey playing boy, hero worships you. Each game he goes into he says he wants to score like Sundin but most importantly have his teammates back like you. Its a little difficult for him to find the net alot of times considering he is a defenceman!!!!! Also, like most boys his main concern in life up until this point was getting to the Air Canada Centre to see the Leafs in action. He saves his allowence in the hopes to get there and take his best friend Jack! For awhile it seemed as if the desire to get to a Leafs game was what kept him going.
Dear Mr. Domi:
I am writing to you concerning my 16 year old son, Spencer.
Spencer has been a Leafs fan since he was a little kid. His grand-father, my Dad, was a Leafs fan for at least my entire life that I can remember. I often joke that my Dad brain-washed Spencer from a very young age.
