I appreciate everything you've done for me more than I could ever tell you. You worked hard every day to make sure I always had what I needed. You did without most of the time so that I could have. You taught me everything I know today about what it means to work hard and to do my best. I know that I survived and succeeded in the Army because of the example that you've always shown me, and maybe a little because I'm a lot like you :) Thank you so much for raising me in a Christian home with values to live by. I love you very much!
