“I want to create memories with my sons, my wife, and family. I want them to know just how much they mean to me, and how much I love them. There’s very little to me that matters more than family, and Christmastime is the best opportunity for us to make the most out of the time we have together.

Merry Christmas!”

“I’ve never really made a Christmas wish list.  I suppose I hope for my family, friends, and students to be filled with faith, warmth, laughter, and peace during the upcoming year.  May they always remember their worth and that they are loved.”

“A new Lego set (just like every Christmas since I was about six years old), quality time with family and friends, good food, and lots of college bowl games to watch.

For all my students, time to relax and recharge so we can make 2024 the best year yet!”

“I would love to be able to give myself and my friends and family plenty of quality time by creating many memories together. It sounds cheesy, but after this crazy year, I think we all just need some rest, relaxation, and time spent with those we care about most.”

“Since losing my son Tyler, the holidays are very hard. My wish for all who have lost a loved one is to navigate through the holidays gracefully, to cherish the memories of those no longer here, and to appreciate the love they have now. Merry Christmas to all.”
