    Hello. First things first, I want to say how proud I am of my great-nephew, Jacob Lee Lampton. He is a part of this year graduating class of 2013. I am sure his mother and dad are so proud of him. And his grandma Sam I know is happy. This is her first grandchild who has graduated and this makes the third one in the great-grandkids who has crossed a great mile stone. Life for all the graduating classes has just begun and a new chapter in life, so I wish many blessings for all of you.
