    What can I say, I’m overwhelmed. It’s hard to believe that I could be the guy you’re describing. I’m sure there could be a list of more than 30 reasons I’m aggravating! But thank you, this was incredibly special. I love your giant heart, your versatile intelligence, your addictive sunshine smile, singing in the car and most of all spending every day with you.
