CONGRATS KEVIN! I AM SO PROUD OF YOU FOR STICKING TO YOUR GOAL. WE HAD SOME HOOPS TO JUMP THROUGH BUT YOU DIDN'T GIVE UP. NOW YOU HAVE SOMETHING THAT WILL STAY WITH YOU FOR A LIFETIME. BEING AN EAGLE IS A GREAT HONOR AND SOMETHING YOU WILL LIST ON RESUMES, COLLEGE APPS AND EVERYTHING ELSE FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE. BEING A STAR FOOTBALL PLAYER OR LEAD CHAIR IN THE ORCHESTRA OR CLASS PRESIDENT DOESN'T COMPARE TO BEING AN EAGLE SCOUT!!

I LOVE YOU,

MOM
