Ladies and Gentlemen,
This man below (in all his redneck glory) is now a Doctor.
Yesterday, at 11:06 a.m., Colton's Dissertation Chair came into the Hallway of Browning Hall at the University of Memphis to say "Congratulations, Dr. Cockrum"
Tears of joy flowed down both of our faces. I told Colton that I felt like he just birthed a child (that was in the womb for 4 and 1/2 years). It was by-far one of the proudest moments in my life. It felt like our wedding day or the day Coleman was born. Such joy and overwhelming emotion. I am so proud of Colton! He never complained or grumbled at the early morning writing when he could have easily been watching football, or sitting by the Mississippi River.
We are blessed.
Sola Deo Gloria
(To God Be The Glory)
