Grandad and I are very proud of you and how hard you have worked over the last four years and how much you have accomplished. We are especially grateful for how committed to your family you are and what a rock you have been during these last couple months.

You are truly a blessing.

Callie! Congratulations on making it! You are a college grad! Thanks for helping me with Central nursery freshman year. You are a gem and I wish you all the best in the life ahead of you. <3

We’ve had our fair share of ups and downs, but I’ve loved every minute of it. We’ve lived together for years and battled late nights after late nights (whether going out or studying). We’ve been waiting for this day for years and it’s finally here! Congrats dude!
Your “Little”

Stay in touch!
