1) Imagine you didn't have DG in your life.. describe your personality/life.
"I would probably not know nearly as many people, nor have hardly any of the experiences, both learning and fun, that I have had because of DG. I would probably be too shy to want to be involved in anything, so I would just sit at home and hope that I meet people at school or that my roommates would want to hang out."
2) What about DG will you miss the most?
"I will miss all of the advice that I could get from all of the sisters that I had never had in my life until college! And I will definitely miss the trips, sharing closets, helping with hair and makeup, and all of the stories."

"After all we have been through, good and bad, I can truly say that I would not be who I am today without each and every one of you. I have been blessed to know you, and am privileged to have gotten the opportunity to spend time with all of you these past four years. Thank you all for being there for me through thick & thin, and forgiving me when I failed to reach expectations. I do not know what I would have done without you all. Stay in contact, and don't forget about me as you travel and get jobs! I love you all!!! ITB."
