Congratulations to my brother Jack!! Our parents valued education immensely and it was our mother's most fervent wish for all six of of her children to graduate from college. Although Jack's education was interrupted when our father had a massive stroke, he has completed it with enormous distinction and earned his degree from Harvard University! We are all SO proud of him. Now all six of us earned college degrees. I am certain that our parents are applauding this awesome achievement from their front row seats in that big grandstand in the sky.
