I had the great honor of taking the photographs of Emily, who I have known literally her whole life! My little sister who was about 5 or 6 at the time, declared that with Emily's birth her family and ours had become all one big "Family." So prophetic. The joy of watching her first steps to "dunking" her Aggie ring, to watch her play and care for my two young sons (just as I did with her and her sister, when I was the age she is now). Emily has an immensely special place in my heart and I am honored that she enjoys calling herself "my daughter." I truly feel that she is. And I am so extremely proud of her accomplishments and academic prowess, graduating from Texas A&M University a year early. I wish her the best of luck as she now ventures into adulthood and takes on the task of educating our youth. CONGRATULATIONS, EMILY!!!!!!!! Texas A&M University, Class of 2013!!
