I don't know how today has gotten here. It seems as if time has stood still and sped by at the same time. Please shine down on us today as we bring you your cross and as your classmates cross the stage on to new journeys. I know getting to graduation was not an easy task for you as school work was all so pointless to you... I remember you saying "WHAT am I going to use THIS for??" I also remember saying "I have no idea I wanted to know the same thing... Just do it!" There was too much life to live for you to worry about a book written 136 years ago or what 2a+(5+5)=26 was. Too many friends to talk to, too many moments to spend with Shanen, Mariah, Anita, me, Ganee, Grandaddy, Drake, Carlton, and the rest of your wonderful family and friends... To many HUGS to give! But with a combined effort we got you to this day! I am just filled with such heart ache that we will be honoring you with a moment of silence not the redneck Wooohoooooo I had planned to yell as you crossed that stage to get you diploma.
This is not fair Sis not at all!
I want to thank Ganee, Anita, Lex, Mariah and Shanen and all your wonderful teachers who helped you through the years and you Deanna for the work you put in even though there were so many better things to be doing. . Baby girl you were so much like your Mommy! Just ask Aunt Phyl... It took the same to get me across that stage!
I am proud of you my sweet girl and proud of your friends and I will sit there today cheering them on as I know you would have!
I love you so much!
