A Thank You Note to Christopher's Classmates and Fellow Students From Christopher's Father
It's a beautiful day and I wish we were somewhere else.
This is a moment to stop,
Savor the moment.
Don't rush quite so fast — straight through your young lives.
There's a lot of pressure on all of you students.
Exams are coming up, and some of the pressure that you're
Now is the time to stop and think about what's really
Next week, when you start studying for your exams,
Or, at the very least, enjoy the walk home after the exam.
It was a wonderful experience for us to see all of
Rhetta, Taylor and I thank you all.
To those of you who have visited us before, you are as
And those of you who promised to continue
She will need your guidance and support
As Taylor said to us two days ago at the hospital, "Who am I going to get now to teach me how to grow up.... and be cool."
Again, we thank you for the friendship you provided
