Seth, I'm so happy for you! Who knew when you were in that little school band at Rush that you would become such an accomplished musician! I'm proud to have known you. Will you be posting any of your music soon? I would love to hear it. I would also love to see you and your students performing. Much love to you...Mrs. B.
Thank you so much, Mrs. B! Sorry it took so long to get back to you. I'm trying to keep everything up to date. We'll see how all this works ;)
And to think you came from okemah
Looking at your photograph in a photograph on my wall various stages of your life I realize there's not one moment I was not proud of you. This was not handed to you by any means! °I watched you earn it! And each time you came to a wall even though I didn't know how you would get past it I always knew you WOULD and I as your Dad now have leaned so much from watching YOU! You life has been kinda like that day worked past those skinned up knees for me to see you excited face and hear your voice as you flew down the street "LOOK DAD! HAHA LOOK DAD I AM DOING IT!"
Only it is your Heavenly Father that taught you to ride the bike of Life! And he is just as elated as I was that day watching you so proud of you and th at lovely wife if yours. I will never forget the van at your wedding as you eat pork your own sand into the single guys twisted as Infinity even DNA has one that was awesome and that really describes your relationship as I see it. The exciting part? (Besides that I am about to stop this NOVEL) is....
You went through all that just to get here and THIS IS ONLY THE BEGINNING!
In closing I must acknowledge the man of great influence and example in your life. SHOUT OUT to Millard Edwards! Thanks Pop! Till I see you again ;)
