Tonight Joshua walked across that stage and became an official graduate of Cedar Ridge High School. He was so very handsome, and it was so exciting. The law enforcement officers came out and gave him a great surprise and an escort from the restaurant to the Dean Smith Center (sorry was not at Cameron! Go Duke!). Orange County, Chatham County, Durham, Duke, NC Hwy Patrol, Cumberland, and the Blue Knights as well as other police/sheriff officers riding motorbikes and patrol units with lights flashing and sirens sounding off, we went down the highway to Katie and your son's graduation! Then our families- Grandma Peggy and Grandpa Gene, Aunt Becky, Cindy, then friends Nana Barr, of course Katie made lots of the plans and got us where we needed to be. Mark, Rick, Tom, Robby, Stan, and many other officers were there. I missed seeing you there but I pray God let you watch your son take this step into a new chapter in his life. pray that Joshua felt loved by those around him and by you. That his Dad was also loved by so very many.

I need this moment with you tonight. I think of you constantly and I so sorry you have left us so early in your life. I miss our family dinners with Jamie and you and your families. I am sad that we are missing so much of watching and being apart of the children's lives. They will grow up with no memories as children together. This is something that we can never give them, it is gone, just like a whisper in the night. I love Jamie and you so very much!

"Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is well-pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and every. Amen" Heb. 13:20-21
