Thank you for your touching article about Stan Watts and his tribute to the firefighters involved with the New York City terrorist attacks (Sept. 11). I went to school with Stan and also studied under Gordon Moore. Mr. Moore always said that "Stan was the most gifted, natural-born artist he had ever known." This, from a truly gifted artist himself.

I moved away from Utah shortly after graduating and have just recently returned. I have always wondered whatever became of the troubled young man with the God-given gift. It thrills me that Stan is using his amazing talents to better the world and he has found peace for himself.
