I’m a really proud Uncle. I have two great nephews who finished high school this year, one already graduated and another to graduate tomorrow. Hunter and Ethan this post is for you. As you know, I’m old. 🙂 I can remember when you Dad’s graduated from high school for goodness sake!  And yes, I can even recall graduating from high school myself. Well, I remember it a little. Hunter I so wish I could have seen you walk down the aisle and collect your diploma.  You’ve made your parents and your Uncle Paul very proud!  I can’t wait to see what you do next!  Ethan, I can’t make your graduation either but know in your heart that I’m very proud of you too!  I’m so looking forward to following your life’s journey! As I look back at my graduation day all the way back in 1983 I recall receiving a card from someone, I wish I remembered who, that I still  have in my possession.  It meant a lot to me so I figured I’d share it’s message with you.  It was a poem written by Rudyard Kipling called “If”.  Take the time to read it.
