For some reason, I could only post 3 pics on the previous post.
Here is Samuel giving his speech - just two graduates means both get to speak!
Samuel and Claudia with our pastor and his wife, Mickey and JoAnn Hollars:
Our family - me (Susan), Beth, Samuel, Andrew, and Wes (I'm the shorty in the family now!).
Samuel with his bus captain from our years at Baptist Temple, Bro. Anthony Davilla. Samuel loves Bro. Anthony and his family dearly, and he mentioned them in his speech. You could hear Anthony's wife crying! LOL Their little girl, Jacquelyn, was born 2 days after Samuel's 12th birthday, and the two of them have been best buddies ever since. She calls him Bubba, even though she has 3 big brothers of her own!
After the graduates received their diplomas, our pastor preached to them! You can hear his sermon here. Scroll down the page to Sunday evening, May 28th, and click on the link to download the sermon. On Sunday morning, Wes preached, so you can listen to his sermon too, if you'd like. These are two of my very favorite preachers! ;)
