Not only for the privilege of existence but for teaching me that family and relationships are not defined by marriage certificates, divorce papers, paperwork & especially geography & where one lives. The dignity and respect with which you’ll treat each other even though you’ll have been separated for more than three decades inspire me more than you’ll will ever know. Parents tend to forget that their children watch their actions & not merely listen to their words. Thank you again for leading by example and never setting standards for me that you’ll never first applied to yourselves!”
