To My Daughter, Caitlin...
You're only a "Bolte" for a few more days... but you'll be my daughter forever! So many memories... so many laughs... so many arguments... so many unanswered phone calls... so many delicious cherry pies... so many reasons to love you... so many smiles... so many decisions in the past, and in the future... so many years as a "Bolte".
But as of Saturday, April 13, 2013, you'll become a "Burchett". We've prayed for you so much throughout the years... for many reasons. One of the most important topics was your future husband. Michael is a wonderful young man from a wonderful family. We already count it a blessing to have him as part of our family.
So, on Saturday, I will count it my honor to have you on my arm for our walk down the aisle toward your new husband and future life. You are the last of our three children to wed, but the wait will be worth it. Michael and you will be a beautiful addition to our family.
May God abundantly bless you as you strive to seek and follow his will for your lives with a laser-like focus. Please remember that we're always here for you both, during good or tough times. It doesn't matter if you're a "Bolte"... or a "Burchett". Caitlin, we will always love you. Please know how proud we are of you.
