I honestly thought I would cry, but, I held it together quite well. I credit that to staying busy.
The Teenager and her classmates held it together pretty well, too.
The class wore the ribbons that The Teenager had made to honor Brandon's memory and he was also mentioned in one of the valedictorian speeches, which was nice.
Of course, the nicest part of the ceremony was the part where it was kept short enough to be meaningful but not boring, as graduations can tend to be. And, at the end of the day, the kids were left with some amazing memories of high school and a piece of paper that proved they had been successful. Can't ask for much more than that, unless, you ask not to cry at your daughter's graduation.
