My June has graduated from Wellington High School with an honor's diploma. We were invited to her graduation party and it was so wonderful to be with her and her extended family....most of whom knew us from when I was the babysitter. My heart still gets pinched when I think how badly I wished she could be mine, how I wished her life could have been different. It should have been so different. But her family have always credited her time with me for giving her a love of reading and education...something they all say she would not have gotten from anyone else.
Isn't she just so lovely...and cute...and sweet...and doesn't drink or smoke! Thank heavens.
The hardest part is seeing Brad. Brad has non-small cell lung cancer. He's gone through Cleveland Clinic and NIH...and there's nothing left for him but death. He's such a good man and so wants to live for his only granddaughter. But that's not going to be the case.
June is headed to Kent State University. I am so grateful she will be getting away from this county and will see what's what.
How I love June. I hope I can keep in contact with her forever.
