  1. Congratulations to both of you! You must be so proud! Law school, wow, that is great, good luck to your daughter. You did a good job of bringing her up obviously!! You should give yourself a pat on the back too. I’m sure it hasn’t been easy.

    1. Thank you so much for the kind words, Sally. She is a great girl… I couldn’t ask for a better daughter.
