damn, a day late. down a buck. KERI. YES YOU. HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY…My homie through thick and thin…I appreciate you always being there for me, for being a friend, and always knowing the right thing to do and the right thing to say. If I never tell you how grateful I am that I have known you and that I have shared just a little part of my time on this tired rock with you, then let these humble sentences suffice. A strong young woman finally shedding the sweet sixteen year old I met (though you still don’t remember that chance encounter in your father’s office), I am in awe of the person you are. Again, happy birthday, and I wish you many more in love and joy and friendship.
