FC: "What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson | to the Graduate
1: to the Graduate Love Mom and Dad | She Calls Me Daddy I could buy cars of fancy and travel the world 'round I could store up gold and silver all that could be found I could be a star in movies or an actor on the stage I could have the look of magazines or fountain of youthful age You can keep the fame and fortune and what others want to be 'Cause she calls me Daddy and that's enough for me Some fill their life with diamonds, jewels of every kind I'll tell you 'bout my treasure I'm sure she wouldn't mind Eyes full of wonder every heart beat lives a dream Endless love from heaven and it would surely seem God sent me an angel for all the world to see And she calls me Daddy and that's enough for me Pok-a-dot pajamas, ribbons in her hair Rock a bye baby and a worn out teddy bear A smile filled with sunshine on my cloudy days of gray I'm tired and there's work to do but than I hear her say Sing with me, dance with me, stay awhile and play with me Then she calls me Daddy and that's enough for me More like a woman than a girl these days Lord you know I'm proud of her in so many ways A lifetime of memories that only we could share Others have their fame and fortune but I don't care 'Cause a front row ticket to her life I have for free And she calls me Daddy and that's enough for me Love Always, Dad | Janine, I always hoped that one day I would have a daughter. God heard my prayer and sent me a jewel. It has been a joy and a blessing watching you grow up over the years. I treasure all the fun times we've shared together and also the heartfelt ones spending late nights talking with each other about boys, school life and growing up. I couldn't be more proud of the young woman you're growing up to be. I'm so excited for your future and all that God has planned for you. Stay the beautiful, sweet, loving girl that you are and don't be afraid to step out and take chances, that's what life is all about. I'm your biggest fan and will always be there to help and encourage you. It's time for you to spread your wings and fly! Love You With All My Heart, Mom

23: Janine, I am so proud of you! It seems only yesterday we were running, laughing and playing hide and seek. You still have that mischievous side to you, making fun of my clothes (hey they were in style once), jamming to music while learning to drive stick shift with Uncle Jeff, teasing Jayden and Josh. But I also see a new emerging Janine, a graceful, poised and beautiful young woman in place of my grinning and shy little niece. Where has the time gone? For you it may seem like it has taken a long time for this next phase in your life. For me, time has passed in a flash. Looking through the camera lens at you this year I had tears in my eyes thinking "Janine has become the confident woman she will be the rest of her life!" I love you and will always be here for you. Good luck as you move forward to achieve all your dreams!! Love, Aunt Julie
