I really hope you know how much WE love you.

On top of that… you have given me many years of genuine happy and wonderful memories.
It takes a truly special person to do that.
And thank you for your words of advice. I will say this; in this life, it’s REALLY hard not to be cynical. But I was listening. And I will try simply because you said so.
Good Luck. (Not that you need it.)
