Parents welcome good news about son from afar

Being a father is hard enough, being a father living miles away is even harder.

My wife, Neung, and myself are both very proud of my son, Ryan Apel, and were so happy to review the news about him (Sports Spotlight, Jan. 23).

Living in a high-tech world, it’s hard to think you can read the paper even in Third World conditions. Keep up the great work.
