“To my loving wife Carolyn,
The day I married you, I did not think I could love you more. But, in the passing years, my love for you has grown every day. You are not only my wife you are my friend, my girl, my lover and mother of my children. You are only 5 feet 0 inches tall, but it is all heart. You have given me a love that few couples enjoy. Just holding you close to me and telling you how much I love you, makes my heart glow. I thank the Lord above for making you my partner for life. When you became my wife, I became the luckiest guy in the world!
My love always.”
