Hi, all!

In response to Joey’s 25th anniversary post, I thought I’d take the lead and do some boasting of my own.

Thursday morning, the family will be flying out of LAX to Indiana to watch our son graduate from Purdue. After losing one son due to medical problems at 26 years four years ago, this is a very important occasion for us.

I’ll be checking in occasionally on his laptop but until our return, my wish is for every person here to have his or her particular guiding light shining upon you and your family keeping you safe, healthy and happy.

Go Boilers!!!

Hey Ron,

Congratulations and having had the same experience in 1993 with our son I can assure you that you and your family will have one proud moment in West Lafayette.

We have always lived in Maine and when he graduated his employment took him to California, but to this day I often hear him mention meeting still with different people he went to school with .

Best of luck, and remember when polled, 99.9% of students said they chose Purdue over IU because they already had a high school education. :))

Go Boilers!

Congratulations on your son’s graduation. This is a goal for which I am sure that you have been working since he was born. You have every right to be proud of him. He is now able to work in the field of his choosing and he received a top notch education as well. Sounds like a winning combination to me.

I wish you and your family nothing but the best.
