S: To: Sally and Tommy Love, Becky
BC: I hope the days come easy and the moments pass slow and each road leads you where you want to go and if your faced with the choice and you have to choose I hope you choose the one that means the most to you And if one doors opens to another door closed I hope you keep on walking 'till you find a window If it's cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile I hope you never look back but you never forget All the ones who love you and the place you left I hope you always forgive, and you never regret And you help somebody every chance you get Oh, you find God's grace in every mistake And always give more than you take But more than anything, more than anything My wish for you Is that this life becomes all that you want it to Your dreams stay BIG, your worries stay small You never need to carry more than you can hold And while your out there gettin' where your gettin' to I hope you know somebody LOVES you and wants the same things to Yeah, this is my wish -Rascal Flatts

13: The Beach was so much fun! It was definately worth the extra 6 hours of driving!

You amaze me, buddy! You attack life with such intensity, and it is clear that you put everything you have into all you do. Your excitement for life is contageous, and you are hilarious! It felt so normal having you stay at my house, and I wish you could come out here more often. You are growing up so fast, and I cannot wait to see where you go and what you do in the years to come. I love you so much, bud. Keep trying your hardest at what you do because you are amazing. Love you forever and always, Becky | There's no other love like the love for a brother.
