A promise to mom – Alumnus Larry Fitzgerald – University of Phoenix

November 7, 2019 82 By Stanley Isaacs


My mother passed 2003 in my
freshman year. But she always told me I don’t
care what happens. I don’t care if you turn out to
be a great athlete or whatever but, you need to make sure you
get your college degree. Sometimes I call the house just
to hear her voice. (phone ringing) Answering machine: Hi you’ve
reached the Fitzgerald, leave a message after the beep. (beep) Hey mom this is Larry. I just want to let you know
that uh, I fulfilled the promise that
you held me to. I wouldn’t be able to do it
without your love and support. And all the values you taught
me and Marcus growing up. They’re still things that I hold
near and dear to my heart and I’m going to teach it
to my boys as well. Love you. (beep)
