BC: We Love you Mom & Dad | It's only for a moment that you were mine to hold, the plans that God has for you will all too soon unfold. So many different prayers we'll pray for all that you may do, but most of all we'll want to know you're walking in the truth. And if we never told you we want you to know, As we watch you grow we pray that God will fill your heart with dreams and that faith give you the courage to dare to do great things. We're here for you whatever this life brings, so let our love give you roots and help you find your wings. May passion be the wind that leads you through your days, And may conviction keep you strong and guide you on your way. May there be many moments that make your life so sweet Oh, but more than memories It's not living if you don't reach for the sky. We''ll have tears as you take off, but we'll cheer as you fly!

6: To my first born, This is a happy and sad occasion for me. My little girl has grown into a beautiful young woman about to go into the world on her own. I am very proud you and what you have become, but I will always miss the little girl with that curly hair. As the day is quickly approaching it's finally starting to sink in that my baby won't be at home when I walk in the door. It saddens me, but I also know that you are heading into the most exciting time of your life now and I am excited for you. No matter what always remember that I love you and I am so proud!! I Love you, Dad | A daughter is the happy memories of the past, the joyful moments of the present, and the hope and promise of the future.

9: Dream Big | Dear Brittany, I wanted to let you know that we are so lucky to have crossed paths with you in our life. From the first moment I met you I knew that you were a very talented, strong and beautiful person! You caught my attention with your energy for life! I have watched you grow over the past couple of years into a very confident young woman who puts 100% into everything you do. I love the fact that you are always eager to learn and open to learning. The one quality that really sets you apart for every other girl your age is your ability to speak your mind and stand you ground when you feel strongly about something. I have watched you find a balance with doing this and taking feedback and moving forward to work the situation to the best of your ability. Many adults I know are not able to do this and I am so proud of the person you are! We love you so very much and you will always have a home at SGA! We are excited about your goals and your future with college and your zest for life! Move forward and have fun! We Love you!!! Missy Seyler

16: Dear Brittany, I cannot believe it has been THREE YEARS and you are now graduating from High School. I remember you as a sophomore- shy but spunky(you and your bows!) You always had a smile on your face and wanted to have fun, while doing a good job. You have always had a sweet spirit, trying to make everyone feel welcome and included. You were always a leader and never a follower....a quality I have always admired and knew you would someday do great things with- a great example was this last year of cheerleading. I hope you take with a multitude of life lessons, as well as many unforgettable memories. My favorite memories are when we went to NCA amp at TCU- you girls took way too many pictures/ had way too much fun, decorated C hall for homecoming, prepared for so many pep rallies, Two rained out games @Pennington (sitting under the stadium for hours) Trinity vs Bell-watching our posters fly around in the storm( after working on them for hours) going to Babe's and the lock-over( you and Paige did a great job organizing that activity). I will never forget all the hard work and patience you put into your position on the team; how you went out of your way to help others, makes others feel welcomed and comfortable, and wanted everyone to succeed. Although it was rough sometimes, you never wavered and always stood by what you believed in-anything! I hope you continue to follow your dreams, work hard at the things that bring you joy, stay close to family and friends, sit back and learn from others around and always strive to be better in your life, relationships and career. Give back when you can remembering that god has always been gracious to you. Last thought someone gave me a cross at my college graduation and I keep it in my classroom. It says,"When I stand before God at the end of my life I would hope that i would have not a single bit of talent left and could say, I used everything you gave me." Brittany you are truly a blessing. Come back and visit! Coach Brack (as you will always know me!) Love you girl:-)

21: For Our Daughter on Graduation Day Today as you graduate one chapter in your life has closed, and another is about to begin. The future stands bright before you, so take hold of your dreams, and never no matter what...let them go. There will be times ahead when you will feel overwhelmed, but try not to give up, for nothing which is worth anything, comes without hard work and sacrifice. When you were a little girl we held your hand. We guided and protected you as best we could, It's time for us to let go now. There is some pain in that. Still, there is also a wonderful sense of pride and accomplishment as we look at the beautiful young woman that you have become. We love you, Britt and we pray that our love will sustain you. It's time now...spread your wings and Fly!!! We love you, Mom & Dad
