He wrote us a letter right after we left and we got it on Friday. It was a letter that I know I will treasure forever. We were all very emotional when we said good bye and he shared a lot of feelings with us in the letter, feelings of love and gratitude for all we have done for him. I know that as a parent, you are not always guaranteed to hear those things for your children, even when they do feel them. All I can say is, the feelings are mutual. We are blessed to be your parents. You have always had a very strong spirit and always been comfortable marching to your own drum. We love that about you and we love you.
