"There are two lasting bequests we can give our children:
One is roots, the other is wings."
This wonderful young woman has successfully been given both.
And has made all of us so very proud of her!
(Yes, of course, copious amounts of tears were shed.)
Now, Miss Lauren, be off to discover your very own path in this wonderful world!
(And don't forget to come back for Sunday Fambly Dinner, ok?!?)
One to look ahead and keep you safe,
One to look behind to be sure nothing is sneaking up on you.
