Last night we celebrated Ben’s graduation with a wonderful party. There was amazing food, good friends, and lots of fun. Most of all, there was laughter and joy.
It was an honor to Ben that so many people came to celebrate with him. It was a blessing to us that we were able to enjoy the day with so many loving friends who have helped us raise Ben over the years, guide him in the way he should go, and love him into who he is.
Thank you. To each and every one of you who took time out of your busy lives to come to eat cake. It means more to us than you will ever know.
