I wish there were enough words, or any words for that matter, to describe how proud I am but there aren’t. Just know that if we were to sit down somewhere and talk about it I would try not to cry. I've cried plenty of times, both happy and sad tears over the last few years as he's worked hard and sacrificed for this. It wasn't anywhere near easy, but that's what makes all of this more rewarding than if it had been.
So congratulations to my best friend in the entire world, and to that seventeen year old boy who had wanted and talked about this so long ago. You did it!
