MA Convocation From Royal Roads

I convocated from Royal Roads University today with a Master of Arts in Professional Communication.

It was delightful to be back on the gorgeous RRU grounds surrounded by my exuberant peers. The day was marred only by the absence of my mother, who died on April 5 this year, as I was completing my major project. As she steadily and swiftly weakened from a recurrence of cancer, she insisted that I focus on my project. She was a huge supporter of my doing the program, both intellectually and monetarily, and she was sorely missed.

Thanks, Mom, wish you could have been there, and you were -- in my heart.
