    It seems like just yesterday when I was in your shoes having my "baby" leave High School and go off to BYU.She has now gone from BYU then to a Mission and then the U for her Master's degree. Memories are so special and time seems to fly by so fast. I know what you mean that you are a mess. I have been there and now I am back. Enjoy the journey!

    Enjoyed the article. I can relate having sent 2 children to BYU. Looks like you'll be visiting Provo a little more often for the next 4 years. Congratulations on your daughter's graduation.

    Congratulations (and condolences) Vai! Your daughter appears to have her dad's knack for moving and inspiring.

    Vai, I look forward to Fridays so I can read your column. I too have sent my baby off to college, your thoughts today bring back wonderful memories of the roller coaster of emotions at her leaving the nest. I hope you write a book some day, and please keep writing for the Deseret News.

    I loved your article. It is so uplifting and inspirational. I sent 8 children out of the nest and it is humbling to see them growing into such great adults. Keep writing these articles. I love them and appreciate them.
