Early to Rise This Morning!

By
Real Estate Agent with GreatWest Realty DRE# 00827565

I was early to rise this morning.  While I sat in front of my computer screen at 6:30 am Pacific Standard Time, I sipped hot tea and marveled at how with Internet gee-wizzery and live streaming, I was able to witness my grandson, Ryan, receive his degree in Mechanical Engineering from Georgia Tech.  He was in Atlanta, and I was in Sacramento.  He is pictured near the center of the picture below, looking over his shoulder in our direction.  Congratulations, Ryan!  Way to go!

Myrl- Congratulations to Ryan!!!   I too have to thank technology because Friday afternoon, I was able to see my niece, Jennifer, receive her Masters in Education Administration from the University of Houston sitting in front of my laptop here in Delray!!!  I couldn't find her as she marched in but got a shot of her when she walked across the stage.

Oh Myrl Jeffcoat - What a joyful celebration! Your grandson Ryan worked hard to get his ME degree. I love the photo of him jumping in the air and the photo of his smiling face in the sea of graduation caps. The fact that nobody else had their faces showing is really something! 

I am wishing him a great career and the ability to become self-sufficient making a good living. Your family has a lot to be proud of and I know you were instrumental in much of their success. Wishing each member of your family complete success, good health, and happiness.
