I need to say thanks to our family. We struggle and you are always there to help us where ever we need it. You put up with delinquent phone payments and late night computer emergencies. You put up with our dog...and that's saying a lot:) Thanks for helping us go on vacations that we could never afford. Thanks for the innumerable acts of kindness, we love you.
I want to express my gratitude for and to our friends. Not only have you got us through the hard times but you have created some of the best for us. Not only were you there for us in the early years but it is you, friends, who introduced us to one another and made this journey possible. Thanks for the late night talks, the game nights, the dinner parties, the softball games and the countless birthday celebrations. Thanks for teaching me to love another's family as much as my own. Thanks for teaching me that service is one of the most rewarding opportunities I'll ever come by. You are amazing and I want the very best for each and every one of you. I think of you often, from those grade school friends to the recent softball team friends and I enjoy the time my family spends with yours.
I know that a simple thank you is not near enough, and hopefully in time I'll be able to give something back to all who have given us so much. I just want you to know you are loved and I appreciate all you do for me. The world would not be the same without each one of you.
