De's memorial cabinet. The cabinet is an antique that belonged to her great grandparents. I have included items from birth to graduation. That is the moment that new De memories stopped, graduation.
De's diploma. Her school Daddy is taking care of it for a little while for me. He worked so hard to get her there he deserved to spend some time with it. Thanks for all you did Lex!
As I was packing a few last things of Des from my moms into the car the most amazing black and white dragon fly flew around me and then landed right in front of me only to take of and fly around the car and off into the blue sky.
The graduation was beautiful! As they called Deanna's name the class mates started standing and applauding and soon the whole audience was out of their seats (except me I was crying a bit to hard sorry baby) and then they called Christen who so bravely walked across the stage and accepted her diploma followed by sweet Scott's name being called with yet another auditorium of standing applause. Two amazing children taken from us way too soon honored in a very special way today. I thank all of you that gave me hugs today I needed each and every one of them. I am so proud of the whole class of 2013 but especially Mariah Jowers, Shanen Cecil and Scott Cecil! PS Leanne Blair Moughon proud of you too I miss your sweet hugs and silliness! Xoxoxo
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!
Last year about this time I made my first solo trip to VA without the kids. Deanna was already working and had written this on the fridge for Drake in case he needed her. I wish there was a number I could call her in case of emergency now.
