These two people meant the world to me and I miss them every single day. Sometimes I wonder how life will go on without them, but I know they’d want me to go out and enjoy my life and do what I love the most.

My parents were my inspiration, my rocks, and only after my husband, my best friends. Mom and Dad the words that I write for the rest of my life will always have you in mind because you always supported all of us in the pursuit of our dreams.

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

May good luck be with you Wherever you go, and your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow.

May your days be many and your troubles be few, May all God’s blessings descend upon you, May peace be within you, May your heart be strong, May you find what you’re seeking wherever you roam.

May you have the hindsight to know where you’ve been
the foresight to know where you’re going
and the insight to know when you’re going too far.
