Congratulations Son!


Hello Friends,

A little over a Week ago my son Graduated from College and to say that I am proud

of him is a HUGE understatement!  Not only did he graduate in 3 years instead of the typical

4 he took an average of 45 credit hours a year while doing so.

He has such drive and determination!!  As I type this

he has already into week 8 of his Masters at Savannah College of Art and Design!

He says no rest for the weary!  Just keep on keeping on!  I don’t know where he came from?

 The cool part is he has done all this while maintaining a job for the

last 2 years, working 40+ hours a week, and is doing his Masters on his dime not ours!

Am I lucky or what?  

Here is a Graduation card I made for him to go along with the FSU class ring we got him!

I can’t take credit for the card Idea…all credit goes HERE!

Very happy with how it turned out.  The tie says it all, it’s my son all the way!



I cannot begin to thank Ty’s girlfriend Sandra enough for capturing such cherished moments

and doing it so well, she sure knows a thing or two about photography!  Thanks Sandra!!!!

In conclusion!

I will always need my son no matter what age I am.

My son has made me laugh, made me cry, made me proud, seen me cry,

hugged me tight, seen me fail, cheered me up, and acccepted me for who I am.

My son is a promise that I will have a FOREVER Friend!

I LOVE you TY Leppek and couldn’t possibly be more proud to call you SON!
