    Satchel, we are so proud of you. We love you and have enjoyed watching you grow into such a confident young man. You have many admirable qualities that will take you a long way in life. We try to teach Griffin and Peyton those same attributes. Congratulations on your successes thus far. It is sad you cannot celebrate that way you imagined. But remember, in adversity lies great opportunity! Your next adventure is to find that opportunity! Love The Puslinch Sumners.

    From the moment I met you, I saw that you are a thinker. As you have grown, I have seen you combine your deep thoughts with a passion to make a difference in the world. Remember that for a number of years going forward that you must be the spark that ignites change. Burn bright and don’t be afraid to be a bit incendiary. Love you, Uncle Scott
