In commencement address to graduating Hokies, First Lady talks about her best friend’s and father’s death and how they shaped her values.

Michelle: “And as I grieved, I came to realize that the best way for me to honor my dad’s life was by how I lived my own life. I realized that the best way to fill the hole he had left was to do for other young people what he had done for me.”
