52: Miranda, Today would be one of the happiest days of your Papaw's life. He still knows what we do and watches us from heaven. You always made him happy and you were his "pride & joy", "His little George should always have what she wants!" He too would tell you to always keep God in your life and always remember how much he loves you! | Miranda, It is so hard to believe we are at this point in your life. You have brought and still do bring so much love and happiness in my life. Always remember to keep God in your life and home and things will always find a way. From my little princess to my queen I am and always will be so proud of you. Love you always, Nana
53: Put your heart, mind, intellect and soul even to your smallest acts. This is the secret of success. ~Swami Sivananda | I remember how excited I was when I found out that I was going to be a grandmother. I couldn’t wait for you to be born. I can’t believe that now you are all grown up and graduating from high school. Time has gone by so fast. It’s been wonderful having you as a granddaughter. I’ve watched you develop from a little tiny baby girl to a beautiful, sweet, moral young lady. You have made me so proud. I pray that God will give you wisdom, wonderful health, and an abundance of joy throughout the coming years. You will always have that special place in my heart. I love you immensely. Mimi | Dear Miranda, You have given me much joy during your short lifetime, but the greatest joy of all was when, as a little child of 5, you announced that you had taken Jesus into your heart! Keep Him there. He will be the best friend you will ever have, sharing all your joys of adulthood and all the grief – for you will have to endure some along the way. He will understand and will love you as you talk to Him, pray to Him, and ask Him to guide your pathway through life. Don’t neglect Him, and He will always be there for you giving you great joy and answering your prayers. He will never fail you. Lovingly, Grandma
54: You did it! | Miranda, I have no idea how or when you grew up soooo fast. You have went from my little girl to a BEAUTIFUL young woman (got that from your daddy). I am honored and proud to call you my daughter, when I stop and look at you I will always see my little Panda Bear. As you graduate high school and end this phase of your life I hope you never forget all that you have learned. I am excited and scared as you become a young adult; scared because you will always be my baby girl who I will protect and excited to watch you grow and become your own person. Please remember to pray often and about EVERYTHING!!!!! You have watched and experienced the changes I have brought into your life, I can honestly say the negative changes happened when I was not praying and seeking God's guidance. Take care baby girl and always remember to live your life everyday take all the bad things and make them Great Things I LOVE YOU!!!!!! Daddy
55: Miranda, You are a very special young lady that we are proud of. Through the years we have seen you grow and change and hold on to your faith. We know the Lord has a plan for you. Continue to seek Him. Love, Brad, Jill & Hope | Miranda, As you enter adulthood stay committed to what you know is right. Love, Grandpa
56: Miranda, Congratulations! We are so proud of you! You are such a beautiful person, inside and out. God has blessed you with a pure and merciful heart. You have a true compassion and love for others. I pray that you use your gifts to glorify God in all that you do. Set your goals high and go for it! Always remember Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength”. We are so proud to call you our daughter and we are very excited to see where this new journey in life takes you. We Love You So Much, Mom and David | Congratulations Miranda! I Love You Soooo Much! Love, McKenna | Congratulations to the best sister ever! I Love You!! Alyssa
