My youngest son has graduated from high school! Daniel, I am
so proud of the young man you have become. You are strong, full of love for family and friends, and has a giving heart. He puts God first in his life and it shows in his actions.
He is planning on serving a mission, then on to college. Right now he is working his first 9 to 5 job and coming home dirty from head to toe! (Working at a Tractor Junk yard.)
When I was going through my cancer treatments he was 14. He took charge of the yard. He made me dinners and saw that I was comfortable. He and his youngest sister who was 10 at the time became my angels of mercy. They took care of me, the house and each other. I loved hearing them talking back and forth to each other! I am so proud of the loving people they have become.
Daniel, I love you. I wish you the happiest life and all the blessings that follow a person as kindhearted as you are.
Daniel loves sports. He was all-conference Defense and Offensive line-football!! He is an amazing tennis player...don't let the size fool you! He has a recorded 100 mph serve and quick on his feet.
He also did well at Track and field in shot put and disc. He is an Eagle scout.
Daniel plays the guitar and has a DEEP singing voice! He is also a great swing dancer. He and his sister, Gretchen, have spent hours practicing and then teaching it, sharing their fun at community youth dances on Saturday nights in our neighboring communities. He is such a fun person!
You are an awesome person...and I love you so much!
Enjoy life Daniel! You have the best of life's greatest moments still coming ahead of you!
