ADAM,

You made it! Congratulations!

Time has passed us by so fast! You have grown from this beautiful bundle of joy baby to this very handsome, independent, intelligent, caring young man. You have given us so many warm, heart filled moments that we will treasure forever. You have accomplished so much in your young life that we are so very proud of you. You can go out in the world as you have already done on your own and be more successful. You already proved that you Deaf-initely can! We wish all the good things that life can bring you. Have a healthy life! Always remember that you will forever be a precious gift to us from God. We love you and we are very proud of you. Love you with all of our hearts forever, Mom, Dad and Blaise

Kirstie

To our wonderful daughter, whom we are very proud of. Good luck with your future goals and challenges and remember you always have a family that loves you very much. Much love and happiness, Dad, Mom, Jilian

Rebecca “What lies behind us and what lies before us are small things compared to what lies within us.� Rebecca--you have done so well with the things behind you and I know you will complete what is in front of you. We know you have so much more inside. Holly and I are so proud and Daddy is shining down on you! Love, Mom and Holly


D’Ontae

I am so proud of you. Think, relax, choose your battles. Most of all...Don’t lose focus and you will make your mark. Love, Dad

Congratulations D ’ O n t a e ...aka Young Perry.

I remember the day you were born. So excited was I. My “1st” grandchild. Beautiful to behold. I watched as you grew and I learned when you learned. You have been such a joy to me. May God bless all the work of your hands as you journey into adulthood. Continue exploring, learning and enjoying life. I love you, Granny Bea

Good Luck Graduate!


Thank you Phillip for: Being there for my recitals; Being my best friend; Being my company Friday nights; but most of all--Being our son! Congratulations Phillip! Love, Dad, Mom, Frankie, Becca, Grandpa, and Abby, too!


~The Seniors Crying~

When we graduate We will have goosebumps And finally Tears in our eyes We will move our tassels and Yell, ”Iʼm so done with high school!” We donʼt want to leave friends behind Crying Friends are crying Families are crying So many tears in our eyes We didnʼt want this to end We will visit you someday This year was fast Everyone is crying Because we will leave Donʼt worry It is a small world We might see each other again We are crying because we miss you already By Jojo Rae Oberholtzer and Class of 2008
