“Big jobs usually go to the men who prove their ability to outgrow small ones.” – Theodore Roosevelt
You have been wise to make choices on:
the talents and salvation the Lord has given to you,
the honor and responsibility your dad has given to you;
the love and guidance your mom has given to you;
the influence and heritage you family has given to you;
the freedom and security your country has given to you;
the training and creativeness your teachers have given to you;
the faith and patience your church has given to you.
By those choices you have become a fine, honorable, and trustworthy man. Your family is so proud.
YOU WILL DO WELL AND I CONGRATULATE YOU!
