I am so proud!!

Yesterday I attended the graduation of the beautiful young lady pictured above. Her name is Alexandrea Gomez. She is my Tia Andrea’s daughter. Just the fact that she made it to graduation after her mother died is amazing enough. But she graduated with honors. Golden State Merit award, 4.0 all four years, CSF lifetime member, and the first girl to wrestle and win a league championship on the boys team.

This young lady has shown tremendous strength and discipline. I am in awe of her every single day. Since my tia’s death she also has had to help with her younger brother. Has had to give up some of the things she previously enjoyed to grow up a little more.

This fall she will be attending Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego. Her major is Biology/pre-med. I know he can do this. I know she will be fine. But my heart is so heavy. I could not imagine going through all this with my best friend, with no mom.

Alex I love you, I will always be here for you, and I am so very proud of the young woman you have become. Aim for the stars because you never know, you might miss. Imagine the possibilities. Love you, Bob
