There is something about a piece of paper that makes everything official.David has been 'done' with school for a while now and we knew he finished with a 3.98 GPA, but getting the diploma in the mail made it REAL!!!! He worked so hard to get this degree-not sacrificing his marriage or family (which grew by 2 kids while he was enrolled) to get it either. He stayed up late, read text books on airplanes, wrote countless papers into the wee hours, and tolerated the ramblings of professors who made him shake his head and laugh out loud.
I am so proud of you David for your hard work and determination. You did it!
