The Graduate

What a kid! I couldn't be prouder of Marc. To know him is to love him. If you spent an hour with him you'd wonder if his degree was in Computer Science, Philosophy, English Literature, or Pre-law. He has a huge heart that's 100% pure gold and a disposition to match.

He deserved a life surrounded by family in abundance who loved, encouraged, supported, praised, and burst with pride at all he did. He deserved grandparents who lived long enough to spoil him rotten and tell him he's a genius for every little thing he did. He deserved more than just my voice.

I'm so glad that he and Brett are best friends and that they have each other. They make this mom so proud!

Marc should have heard more than his brother and I scream after his name was called at graduation -- AND THAT HE DID! Thank goodness for his wonderful, loving friends.

I've got the greatest kids on earth! I'm one lucky mom! :)

I wish you could really see this video. I was just too excited and the camera went everywhere, but at least you can hear his friend's cheer, who, by the way, were on the other side of the Civic Center from Brett and I. The second screams are ours. I know not to give up on my day job to become a videographer.

WOW!! What a day, what a kid! I'm so proud of both Marc and his mom! I gotta tell you, it seems like yesterday we were sad/glad to see him leave home.

Congratulations to all of you!
