Jimmy, I'm sure your Dad is very proud of your accomplishment. He loves you unconditionally as does our Lord that brought all of us through the rough parts on our road of life. Your Dad was a true and wnderful friend. I still miss him and all of the great memories we all shared while he walked with us. If I ever need to cheer up and laugh, I think of your Dad and know that he's watching over us.
Take care of yourself. I'm proud of you as well!
