Your brother,

I am looking forward to being a college graduate like you in a few years. Thanks for being my older brother and paving the way so I know what to do (and sometimes what not to do).


It seems like yesterday I was reading the poem called “If” by Rudyard Kipling to you that was hanging on the wall in the hallway next to your bedroom when you were a little boy. The poem written by a father to his son, talked about what it means to be a man. I also remember the poem you wrote when you were nine that talked about faith and belief and it stated that anything was possible including flying. Both of those poems are a reflection of who you have become as a man. Congratulations on your achievements. You are beginning a brand new journey now. Please take some time to reflect on the journey you took to get to where you are today. We are very proud of you and we wish that we could be there in person to celebrate your accomplishments.
I love you,

Congrats B!

Your kindness and fervor is admirable! Wishing you the best in all your future. From one Floridian to another, go off my guy!

With love,

Please excuse my slowness in congratulating you on your graduation. I am *finally* signing your profile in the digital yearbook! I greatly enjoyed having you as a student in several courses, and I commend you for your enthusiastic engagement with the readings in every course that you took with me. You asked a lot of good questions (and sometimes you asked great questions), and I will miss having you in the classroom. Wishing you many blessings as you go forward. Please stay in touch! DLT
