Say thanks to those who brighten your days

(Continued)

We drove the Ring of Kerry, the Moors of Scotland and the forests of Sweden. We’ve seen Gettysburg, the Alamo and the Little Big Horn. We’ve traveled from Times Square to the Golden Horn, and love South Hill Road in Worcester the most.

Together, we have made money and lost money, but through it all, we stood side by side and pulled in the same direction. Many long nights were worked and chances taken, but businesses must be run and bills paid. We understood and never looked back. With each passing year, I love and admire you more!

The best deal I ever made was: To have and to hold from this day forward, for better for worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part, according to God’s holy ordinance.

I have loved you since our eyes first met, and I shall love you until I close mine for the last time.

As Lord George Lyttleton once said, “How much the wife is dearer than the bride.”

Thank you for saying “yes” so many years ago!

  • Romney focuses on self; Obama emphasizes unity

    Mitt Romney criticizes President Obama for saying a person's success is rooted in his community, and is not all his alone. Romney belittles this with his belief in individual initiative. He is better at the put-down than the push-up.

  • Romney shows little regard for common man

    The Republicans in Congress have voted over and over, 33 times, redundantly and uselessly, to rescind what they call Obamacare.

  • Scouts' gay ban creates problem where none exists

    The Boy Scouts of America's "emphatic reaffirmation" of its vow to exclude any and all homosexuals from its hallowed ranks is ill-considered and pathetic, especially in view of its having reviewed the matter for two years.
