Mother and Dad, this says it all:
If you could have one thing in life, what would it be? We'll think about it for a minute and smile, and then we'll lovingly answer the question. We'll gently let them know that we've already been blessed with the one thing that brings us more happiness than any Treasure, something that is our sweetest source of serenity, and that is our very own dream come true. Someday, someone will ask us and we'll tell them the answer is having a Mother and Dad like you. We Love You Both.
