I greatly enjoyed having in you class and some extra curricular reading groups! I appreciate your clarity and your principle in expressing what you believe and why. I also appreciate how you took every text, idea, and argument seriously. That mindset will serve you well in life!

Notes for Hope

Dear Hope, You took college at The King’s College and Army ROTC at Fordham AND NYC by storm! You are an amazing and talented young woman and I can’t be anymore proud of the woman you are and all you’ve accomplished! You are my inspiration and I am so pleased God gave you to me, as the most blessed mom in the world!! Love and blessings, Momma xoxoxo

Hope, all of your accomplishments have already exceeded my dreams for you; including meeting and marrying your awesome husband Tony! You both have done so much to honor God, and your parents, and we are so proud of you. I love you! Daddy

I am so proud of you more than you will ever realize! Your hard work and dedication has more than paid off for you. You have become a wonderful woman inside and out! Your parents have taught you great morals and values and I know with their support you will hand them down to your children. May God Bless you and Toni everyday! Love you, sweetie! Aunt Karie

world’s okayest roommate! thanks for avoiding homework with me in the most active, productive ways possible. also, thank you for letting me borrow your scooter that one time–I felt so cool riding on it to target. can I come to visit you now?

Ever since you came into our lives we knew there was something very special about you. Once you decide to do something, nothing stops you. The passion you have for God, your family, your education, and your career are wonderful to witness. Nothing can get in your way. We’re proud to be family with you! Congratulations! Can’t wait to see what comes next!


Please excuse my belated congratulations on earning your PPE degree in the spring. It was a great pleasure to have you in Con Law, International Politics, and Russia & the West. I also enjoyed conversing with you outside class about Russia, global politics, and your participation in ROTC. Our military will be lucky to have you as an officer! I look forward to staying in touch. Wishing you many blessings.

As ever,
