Text, Audio, Video of Address

 

"My mom, a devout Catholic, was the strongest, most selfless, most caring, compassionate, loving person I have ever met. She pretty much raised all six of us on our own, while dad was serving our nation. But she always taught us the glass was always half full, and no matter what the challenge, no matter how hard the road, that it would never rain on our parade."
