On the occasion of Ric’s birthday, it’s difficult not to feel deep gratitude for this dear man I’ve had the pleasure of sharing life with these past sixteen years.
From those first witty exchanges online to our initial meetings, I was intrigued: here was a man with intelligence and passion that listened and responded, encouraging dialogue.
How our life has grown and evolved since those early days – all to Ric’s credit. Even in hardship, he has held us up, never one to back down from challenge.
On this day, remembering all the joy, and tears we have shared, I am especially grateful for the adventures, and to have said “I do” to a man who would enrich my life for many years to come.
I hope these aging years are kind to you, my love.
