Sanu shared a picture of the letter on Twitter on Friday. It displayed the following message:

You don’t know us, but we wanted to thank you.
Our son sat behind you on this flight and watched you.
He saw you studying your plays, watched you make healthy choices with your snacks, food and drink. He watched how police you were to everyone.
He is only 10, but just made an elite hockey team and we are on our way to training in CT. You are an inspiration to children and for that you should be proud!
Thank you and best of luck!
The Family that sat behind you :)

"It's the little things," Sanu said on Twitter. 

Sanu replied to several tweets, asking him about the letter. He said the mother handed it to him and told him to read it later. She then walked away. 

Sanu also said his healthy snacks included a banana and some cranapple.
