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!
