This woman! This incredibly smart, determined, gifted, kind, caring, vivacious, generous, and fun lifelong friend was supposed to walk the stage tomorrow as the new 🌟DR. Becky Sherwin🌟 with an ScD in Physical Therapy. And I was gonna be there to yell loud! Really loud.🙊
She has worked so hard for so long and won’t be able to wear that hood and poofy hat on that stage to celebrate this HUGE accomplishment.😫 But I’ve promised her a party as soon as this is all over. I’ll even recreate the stage for her!🎈
So until then here’s 32 years (!) of photos from college roommates, big curly hair, matching clothes (many of which she made for our singing group), huge earrings, crazy faces, mission trips, singing rehearsals, goofy portraits, and lots of parties to husbands and babies, supper clubs, tons of shopping trips (mostly for her), pregnant Nun costumes in downtown Chicago, crafting on the floor, cross country trips, and countless nights sitting up late talking about life, love, and our moms (who we felt for sure were partying together in Heaven!).
Becky, you are an INSPIRATION! From the moment I first met you in college to last week’s video call giving me tips to help my pain. I love ya! I’m sorry this day looks different than we planned, but please know you have TONS of FANS who will shout your name from the ROOTOP this weekend! Congrats on a job well done! 🎉🎓💃🏻
