A Special Thanks To...

There are so many people I would like to thank, so many people who have had an effect on me, and have impacted my life with simply their presence. I would first off like to thank my youth pastor Bobby Brooks, for teaching me and showing me what it means to be a true follower of Christ. Along with Anna Brooks for all the love she's shown me, and of Course Alyssa, for letting me be a big sister. Thank you Brooks family for standing with me through it all. A huge thanks and hug to my best friend/mentor/sister Erika, you have been so real with me, and such a light in my life. Another huge thanks to Phil, Laurie, Emily, The Blahnik's, Marshal Pam, Stephanie, Ben, Kyle, Cameron and Amelia for letting me borrow some of your joy to give to the world. I love and am so grateful for all my friends who have stood by me. Thank you Elijah for everything you have done to put my dreams into action, you really are one-of-a-kind and will be my friend, always. Thank you Holly, Taylor, Elaina, Cara, Tori, Jake, Sean, Abbey, Amy Jane, Jamie, and Sydney. I would like to thank my teachers! For real! You have affected me so much, and I have so much respect for you and all you do. I have had some of the greatest Science teachers ever. Of course, I would like to thank my Family, though we are not perfect we are perfect. Thank you Mommy for all you have taught me. You constantly teach me and inspire me. Thank you for not being my best friend and teaching me right from wrong, and thank you for letting me go and letting me fly. Thank you Dad for all you have taught me and given me. I love fishing with you and learning from you. You are the smartest man I know. Thank you to my Big brother Lou. You are truly a great guy, and a wonderful example to follow. You're a good leader and a wise man. I know it is odd, but I would like to thank everyone who I have ever crossed paths with, whether you be kind or cruel you have made me grow into who I am, and for that I am grateful. Finally, thank you God for giving me all these people, who show your love and grace, who lead me to your kingdom, and for all the blessings you have granted me with. You really work in wonderful ways.
