"And Mom, I've said this for years and I hope you’ll believe it tonight. The strength I have came from you because of your unconditional love. You and Dad showered me with so many compliments and praise, that I felt I could do anything. Thank you for that. You’re the best."

"Mom and Dad C., you too have stepped in whenever we needed you and I know you’ll continue to be there. You’re awesome parents to me."
