    Connor, I could not possibly be more proud of you! It has been a joy to watch you grow up and to become a man, which is really weird to say. I loved that spunky little boy who questioned everything, not out of disrespect, but because you wanted to know as much as possible. Keep questioning! I also love who you have become and can't wait to watch this next phase. Love you buddy.

    Connor I knew you parents before you were born. They lived next door and I loved them both because they are beautiful spirits and souls. I was so excited to get the news that you were coming. You were born and it was a very exciting and a blessed time. I gifted you with a silver cup because I knew you were special and you would do wonderful things with your life. I came to your christening and though you don’t know me now...you knew me then. I prayed over you then and will always pray over you that you have a wonderful life and the world will benefit from you being all that you are. Congratulations to you and may your life always be blessed

    Dear Connor, What a handsome young man you have grown up to be! But more important is the “person” you have become! We have no doubt that you will achieve your most lofty goals...because you have two amazing role models from whom to learn! While you may feel cheated by the disruption of your senior year because of the Coronavirus Pandemic, you have probably seen the worst of times bring out the best in some people! So many people around you and around this country grew even stronger and kinder through adversity! Cherish that! Learn from that! And remember to be more compassionate as a result of this disturbing yet unique time in history! We love you and wish you God’s speed in everything you attempt to achieve!!! CONGRATULATIONS on a job well done!!!! Aunt Pam & Uncle Burk
