Surprise, Surprise - Smyth family giving back to the community

Letter in the Edmonton Sun yesterday

"WE WOULD like to publicly acknowledge an act of kindness by Ryan Smyth and his wife. Our eight-year-old grandson was at the Stollery Hospital visiting his very sick newborn sister. Kaleb was told that Ryan was visiting at the pediatric ICU and was asked if he would like to go see Ryan. After thinking a few seconds he replied that no, he wanted to stay and hold his sister. After about a half an hour Ryan and his wife came especially to see Kaleb. He stayed and talked with Kaleb, signed autographs and had pictures taken with Kaleb and Maya. Do you think Ryan has a new fan? You bet he does, and many more as well.Thank you Ryan, on behalf of the Strandberg and Moroz families. You made a little boy's day!

(A great story. Thanks!)
