Accomplishment! - Poem by Loyd C. Taylor, Sr.

First a baby… a beautiful little girl,
A special gift of God sent into this world.
Her parents were blessed as they gazed into her face,
She was named Hannah, meaning "favored grace".

Then a child… a delightful student in her school,
She also loved church and lived the Golden Rule.
Studying hard, hitting the books both day and night,
The choices made shaped her character for life.

Now a lady… a hopeful adult she's become,
For twelve long years now this honor she has won.
Graduating today turns life's page once more,
Stepping from this stage into other open doors.

Congratulations Hanna!

    This is a good solid tribute. I can recommend such things at all times. The
    sincerety of the tribute stands out. I am sure she was pleased to read it.
