44: We Love You | Brandi, I can't believe you are already graduating from high school. These years have flown by in a blink of the eye. I'm excited for the journey you are about to take. It is a big step to go out there on your own. I pray that I've given you all the life lessons you will need and that my little voice will always be in the back of your mind as you face different situations. You have grown into a remarkable young woman. Remember your morals and values and stay the independent person you are. God has you where He wants you so be open to the plans He has in store for you. Know the journey He will take you on will be one heck of a ride, so like the roller-coaster rides you love. Seek Him during the dips and praise Him when you reach the top. Enjoy the next four years and know I am here to support you every step of the way. Love, Mom | My Dear Brandi! I just cannot think I could find words that would truly reflect how much I love you and how proud I am of you. You have become a beautiful woman both inside and out. You have now completed the first major part of your life and you are ready to take on the second part. Please know that you have my support and love as you travel this journey. Know that life will be throwing you curve balls and placing temptations in front of you. All you have to do is stop and think about it and remember that even if you stumble, I will always be there for you. Do not be afraid of taking the right risks as that is what will make you succeed and grow. Know that you have many stages in your life and you are just in the beginning. Do not be afraid to ask for help. Do not be blinded by things that can get in your way. Be true to yourself and be kind to others. Know that I love you so very much and that I want nothing more than your everlasting happiness. Remember this “Use lessons from the past- yours- to mold your future! To make good decisions, look beyond the obvious, listen to your heart and know that you will never be alone in anything you do! Love Dad
45: Brandi, Congratulations on your high school graduation! I want to really stress to you the importance of the opportunity that you are about to embark on. You should enjoy your college years with a healthy balance of studying (after all that’s what you are supposed to be doing), meeting new people, looking for opportunities regarding the next chapter of your life, and just absorbing everything that comes your way. I pray that you will use your time wisely and make healthy decisions. Find a church and some good organizations to keep you active and motivated. There may be situations where it might look like you won’t have adequate time to get through all of the projects, exams, social events, etc. However, it all works out. Have faith and you will be amazed at the results! Please let me know if I can assist you in any way. Love, Carl | We Encourage You | Brandi, Time has truly flown by. You have become a young lady that knows what she wants and will go after it with determination and grace. I look forward to watching you achieve your next goal; but on the way remember who you are and keep the morals and values you were taught. Always keep God a part of your life and let Him lead you down the next path. Seek Him first. Enjoy the journey and never take it for granted! Love you always, Aunt Donna | Congratulations on your first phase of school and hopefully the second part is even better. Have fun and do well. Uncle Mark | Congratulations Brandi! So happy for you and so proud to have another Aggie in the family. Whoop!! Stay focused, work hard, have fun, stay sweet and always follow God's lead. And remember, "The Will of God will never take you where the Grace of God can not protect you." Love ya! Aunt Delise
46: We Support You | Brandi: First we want to congratulate you for all your accomplishments throughout your school years. Now that you are graduating, you have so many things ahead of you. As grandparents, it is so much fun to come out to a sporting event and see one of your grandkids performing in band or playing the sport. As you continue with your education, our hopes for you are that you will finish college and accomplish your dreams. Keep your trust in Christ as the center of your life for he will always be there for you. It may not be in the way you would like, but he has a plan for you. Never forget your past because it will help you in the future. Our love and best wishes go with you on your journey. Love and blessings, Grandma and Grandpa | Brandi, Wow, here you are graduating high school and about to leave for college. Whoop! David and I are so very proud of you. What we see in you is love. Love for God and love for others. It shows in your smile and in your eyes and in your actions. Lot's of new things are coming your way, but one thing will always be constant. God loves you. He loves you deeply and completely. We encourage you to take time out everyday to spend time alone with our sweet Lord. He will always show you the way, so trust in Him completely. So go pursue our God and His plans for you. Enjoy every minute of it! We can not wait to see what He has planned for you. Always know that we love you and are praying for you. If you every need anything, we are here. All our love, David and Cindy | Brandi – I can’t believe we are about to graduate! It legitimately feels like just yesterday we were in Ms. Summer’s 7th grade science class playing with Tyrone. Good memories I’ll never forget all of the sleepovers during summer band where we would stay up until 2am and choreograph dance moves to “Low” and a bunch of other ridiculous songs. I can honestly say that you are one of the few people who I know I will always have a good time with. I’ll never forget our little two day Spring Break trip to Austin and all the fun we had walking around the city (seeing naked people and whatnot). I can’t imagine what next year is going to be like without you. I don’t think I will ever find anybody to take your place! I am looking forward to my wedding day where you stand up and give a toast full of all our greatest memories and all our inside jokes. You know I will do the same for you! Good luck next year at A&M! I know you will love it, and I know you will do fabulous! Love - Lindsay
47: We Wish You Luck | Brandi, I'm so proud of you for graduating! College will be an entirely different world to get used to (well I guess since you're going to be an Aggie it really WILL be a different world since that school is so crazy about being Aggies). You will learn so much about the world and yourself so make sure to take in every moment. When I went to college everyone kept telling me it's going to fly by and I needed to appreciate everything. Well of course I didn't listen but they were right! When I say it's going to fly by - I mean it! Meet a lot of new people and enjoy the little moments before you get into the real world and freak out about finding a job. I know everyone at ATM will love you and appreciate your uniqueness. It's going to be sad seeing you and Kev split but hopefully in one year yall will be reunited again. Have fun but make sure you study hard! I'm always here if you need anything or need someone to talk to. I was just in your shoes not too long ago so I understand the changes you're going through. Feel free to call me for anything you need and I'll be there! Love you and I'm so proud of you! -Kristin | Congratulations on graduating high school! Just the beginning of many wonderful experiences. I know you will excel at A&M! Best of luck to you. Enjoy and cherish it, it goes by too fast!! Love you, Brenna | Dear Brandi, I have no idea how my life would be if we weren't cousins! You have brought me so much joy and laughter! My childhood was so much fun thanks to you! I am so excited you got into A&M also, I hope you work hard but have a lot of fun! I'll see you in class in a year ha. But keep your faith strong and we will always be praying for you! Thank you for being awesome! L FOR LOVE!! Kev kev | Brandi, I hope you have a good time in college. Even though we fight, I will miss you. Sincerely, Brooke P.S. Hi! P.P.S. I love you!
