I was talking to a friend of mine after church Sunday and somehow this conversation innocently came up:

Me: I was Salutatorian of my class. That means I was second, you know?
Heather: I know, I was Valedictorian.

This was so funny. The greatest thing, I have found, about being the Salutatorian is that you can say, I was the Salutatorian of my class.

You may have been "second" but you were our first!

Our daughter Anne has always spoke of your brilliance and I am sure the Valedictorian squeaked by you with just one-hundredth of one percent. It had to be that close. Anyhow Mr. Stackhouse would just love that photo today!!! What a classic
