|Mom and Dad in Llandudno Whales October 2011|
I salute you. I am your friend, and my love for you goes deep.
Life is so generous a giver. But we, judging its gifts by their covering,
Life is so full of meaning and purpose, so full of beauty beneath its covering,
And so, at this time, I greet you, not quite as the world sends greetings,
but with profound esteem and with the prayer that for you, now and
forever, the day breaks and shadows flee away.
~ Fra Giovanni
