24: James Patrick, happy graduation buddy!! I hope you always stay as cheerful and funny as u are now. The ability to make people laugh is a great gift, don't ever lose that. Enjoy your years in college because they go by too fast. Love ya, kramer | First off congratulations on graduating! Not guna lie I'm pretty impressed with how far you've come, the wahlert administration must love goof balls haha. You're a great son, cousin, and brother and always make family shenanigans even more entertaining. Your going to do some awesome things with your life, man. Keep up the good work. Congrats! Love, Sam | I can't believe you actually made it out of high school! ha just kidding. I knew you could do it. I'm sure your just as excited for it to be done as I am. It's weird to think that we went to the same high school for a year. Your main goal in life used to be to annoy me as much as possible now Davis has taken over that role. I never thought I would say this, but I actually kind of miss you. Good luck in college though! Try not to get into too much trouble, ya punk. I love you, Daley
25: Happy Graduation, Jimmy. At least you're not dumb enough to fail high school. Have fun in College. Your fav, Davis There we go, Jimmy! Congrats on graduating. Now you don't need to go door to door throwing newspapers all summer for the rest of your life! Good job! Max Congrats Jimmy..have fun at college!! Love, Kennedy Congratulations on graduating Jimmy.You're DA BOMB! Love, Will HAPPY GRADUATION JIMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Griffin Congrats Jimmy, Shannon, and Daley, for graduating school. You guys are the best cousins I could ever have! You are lucky, because I still have six more grades to go. Thanks for all the great times. Sincerely Eric “E-bone” Soderberg
26: Jim, Congratulations on your high school graduation! Your future looks extremely bright. Never lose that huge smile. I'm proud of you! Uncle Brad & Aunt Linda | Jimmy, Congratulations on successfully completing your high school requirements. We all are certainly proud of you and wish you the best of luck as a DUHAWK. I will continue to say the Rosary for you every night. Love Uncle Jeff | I remember visiting Lisa and Jim when I was at Coe College. When it was time for bed Lisa would ask Jimmy questions about his day and then Jimmy would fall asleep on the couch. It was very cute until I realized how much this little guy would sweat. My goodness. Can you say chronic dehydration? Jimmy is fun. His sense of humor - lack of maturity, whatever makes him a pleasure to be around. Kurt & Paula | Dear Jimmy, When you were a little boy all you wanted to do was "shoot the ball." We would play basketball together in the living room and your mom even had a basketball hoop suctioned to the inside of the van window so you could shoot. (Boy was it pain to chase after your basketball in the car!) Anyway, it's been wonderful watching you grow from that little boy into a fun-loving and talented young man. Enjoy your time in college...it goes by too quickly! I love you, Beth (and Jeff too!)
27: Congratulations Jimmy on your graduation from high school. I can honestly say, as a fully grown adult, the first time I lost a video game to a seven year old it was to you! The most important thing to do when you go off to Loras is to move out of your parents house :) Study hard, play hard and try not to get called to the presidents office. This is your Aunt Christina - now that that is out of the way... Know you are loved, supported and prayed for by both of us. Always put God first and you can do ALL things with Christ at the center! We are proud of you! Love, Uncle Scott and Aunt Christina | Dear Jimmy, I left your “note” for last because I wasn’t sure what to say. Sometimes you just leave me speechless! Ok, here’s the deal. You’re an adult now (gulp!), so I’m going to call you James Patrick from now on, unless of course, you’d rather be called Jimmy Joe-Bob like I’ve always done! Let’s see, a memory of you.nope, can’t use that one. How about? Nope, can’t use that one either! Ummm.let’s just go with, you have a great smile and I’ll always remember it! Does that work? I might not have a memory to share, but I will share this. I look forward to the next 10 years or so as you go through college, start a career, get married, and have children. It’s going to be really interesting to see you as a parent! Now THAT is making me smile! Love you! Aunt Terri
28: Jimmy: Congratulations on reaching this milestone in your life. When you were little we used to call you 'Jimmy the Grin'. Don't ever lose that great smile. I love you, James Patrick. Grandma | Dear Jimmy, I'll never forget seeing you the day you were born and you had a tube stuck in the top or your head. What a run you've had since that time. And, now you're graduating from high school. Congratulations! Best wishes on the next step you take in your life. God bless you and keep in touch with your old Grandpa "Flop" | Jimmy, Jimmy, Jimmy... Congratulations on graduating. I think you had more fun in high school than I've had in my whole life. I love that about you... you have fun doing just about anything. I've told you this before, you were one of the cutest babies I had ever seen. And look how handsome you are now! We weren't sure for a while ;)... but it looks like all that dental work paid off! Love you SO VERY MUCH, Jim. (You're a man now, as you told me.) Megan
29: Congtratulations, Jimmy!
