Happy Mother's Day! I sure do love you. Thank you for all your support and encouragement throughout my life. You always defended me, even when I didn't deserve it. You stuck my my side during my craziest years, often acting my voice of reason. You tried your best to keep me level headed and focused on what is really important, and because of that, I feel like I owe most of my accomplishments to your advice and better judgment.
For the last four years, I have had another special lady in my life. Verlene, you are the kind of mother-in-law a girl could only dream of. Thanks for all of your love and friendship, and for raising such a wonderful son. I feel lucky to be a part of your family.
