  • Good Golly Chris, you made an old man shed a tear. You've got a great little girl there and we have all enjoyed being around her. A great competitor and a truly pleasant person to be around. She will be a great success in whatever she decides to do.

    While I was reading this, my eldest daughter called me from Virginia just to say hi to her old man. You'll be getting those calls Chris.

  • This is a very well written piece Chris.

    Your daughter is a fantastic young woman and we are proud of her as well.

    A friend once said that the childhood years go by so fast, but sometimes the afternoons can get really long.

    Rachael's childhood years are behind her now, but what a bright future she has ahead of her!!

    May she forever hold on to what you and Deb have taught her and the love and fear of God that you have shown her as well.

    Go Lady Cardinals!!

  • Your story made Simmons shed a tear. It made this old man blubber. Thanks for sharing this with us!

    P.S. I don't even have a daughter

  • Come on Wigs, there's no blubbering in blogs.

    Hey cheer up, you do have a granddaughter.

  • I saw Chris today on the golf course without Rachel and I talked to him for a brief moment. It always looks odd to see him without her out there, but I do believe that he will make it ok.

    I have always been a Chris Pruett fan, because he has always been, as long as I have known him, just so genuine.

    I like people that don't put on airs or ever act superior to others, and Chris, he's just down to earth, Greene County folk.

  • No blubbering in blogs.

    Great alliteration and bordering on good onomatopoeia.

    Simmons needs a blog.

  • Chris I have two boys myself one 14 and one 12, I do not look forward in seeing them leave home, just remember it's really not goodbye, it's "I'll see you later" bkennedy

  • Excellent words... I am sure it's tough on Rachel as well even if she won't admit!!
