ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Andy Pawlack’s dying wish was to see his youngest graduate high school.

Sebastian has three months to go. Andy had hours to live.

So Westminster High School Principal John Baugher grabbed a gown and a small cap out of the closet and headed to Hospice in Annapolis.

On this March night, a graduation march, not on a stage, but to the foot of the bed.

Principal Baugher then handed Sebastian his diploma in front of his dad.

Sebastian’s mom, Tina King Myrick, informed me that Just before 5:30 tonight, Andy took his final breath. Principal Baugher gave Andy his final wish.
