Now I can post a picture
Saturday my Dearest Grandson Anthony Graduated w/ honors from Dominion HS in Virginia. It rained so ceremony was taken indoors and it went very smoothly. Anthonys Girl Friend Krystyna was president of the Sr Class and gave a wonderful speech. There was also one given by one of their classmates who had lots of trouble and problems, but turned his life around. He brought many of us to tears, his story should be made into a movie. The other students knew he had some problems as a freshman but not the whole story, they too were very moved. Anthony and Krystyna both said he was one of the nicest young men in the school. There were also 8 eagle scouts that graduated. That impressed Brandon as he is working toward his own Eagle Badge. I finally got to give Anthony the Memory Quilt I made for him, he loved it. Told me it was too nice for a college dorm, he would hang it in his bedroom at home and one day give it to his children and his grandchildren. Now it will be off to Virginia Tech and work toward an engineering degree.
