CONGRATULATIONS ANGELA!!!

Congratulations Angela you did it!!!



This post is dedicated to my youngest daughter Angela who will receive her Bachelors degree in Business Administration from Buffalo State College on 5/16/09! What a great achievement, also, to be inducted into the Sigma Beta Delta Honor Society!!









We know it wasn't easy, working your way through school and having to drive all the way to Buffalo 2-3 times a week, but you did it with, determination, dedication, hard work, patience and strength.








You have made us very proud, but then, you always did!!







Watching you grow up has been the most fun, wonderful, heart-filled experience ever!! From the moment you were born....


through koolaid smiles....



through your "what a ham" stage...




and your (extremely short lived period of time)"I like hanging out with mom and dancing in the living room".. age





while going through the "Gary can't go anywhere without me" phase...


and "Can I have a kitten?" phase..



through growing up & graduating from high school...


through our family's life changes and beginning college..




through the "I brought home a puppy and i'm gonna dress him up" age..



through the "I'm in love & we have an apartment" stage....











up to now... graduating college.....







and although they were fun and happy times it's bittersweet because it meant letting go and that is not easy for me to do because above all else, I love my girls more than anything in this world!

HOLD YOUR HEAD HIGH, YOU DESERVE A STANDING OVATION! NOTHING CAN STOP YOU NOW!! YOUR FUTURE LOOKS BRIGHT AND YOUR AMBITION TO CONTINUE YOUR EDUCATION WILL TAKE YOU FARTHER THAN WE EVER COULD HAVE HOPED FOR YOU. YOU'VE GROWN INTO A BEAUTIFUL, WONDERFUL, CARING AND INTELLIGENT YOUNG WOMAN WHO WE ARE VERY PROUD TO CALL DAUGHTER!!




WE LOVE YOU WITH ALL OUR HEARTS AND REMEMBER WE ARE HERE FOR YOU ALWAYS WHENEVER YOU NEED US!!! LOVE MOM & GARY!!!
