I needed a sympathy card for an exceptional young man who just graduated from Briar Cliff University. In one month's time - he graduated with honors with a secondary education degree - was hired as a high school history teacher and football coach - gave the commencement speech at the University's graduation ceremony - received department honors from the Education Department - and was named Outstanding Athlete of the Year - and lost his mother. I did not have the honor of meeting his mother. She must have been an amazing woman because she raised an amazing young man.
