All of those good memories can be remembered by those has a really good memory when they get married and have kids of their own and are going to treasure those memories in their lives forever and whenever they look back at those good memories. Because they love each other and their parents and staff and the teachers too. Because tthe teachers did a wonderful job to the students who learned from their teachers and parents and friends too. Because they are their role models and never going to forget them at all.
