Tonight we are going to dinner to celebrate the engagement of a very dear friend.
Susie and I were working together at Lindsay Hospital when she married Sergio. Over the years our friendship grew. I was there when Sergio, Jesse and Fernando each were born to ooh and aah over each one. Over the years we enjoyed many laughs and tears together. I cried with her when her brother passed away and again when her father passed away. We shared our joys and our disappointments of or families together.
A few years ago, Susie lost Sergio to cancer. Again we cried together.
Tonight there may be some tears, but we will rejoice as we celebrate her and Mike's engagement.
Susie, we are thankful that you have found Mike to share the rest of your life with. Mervin and I want to wish you the very best in all the years to come.
Michael, it has been so good getting to know you. We appreciate the way you treat Susie. We like the love we see in your eyes when you look at her. Keep it there. Take good care of her. She deserves it.
Mervin and Virginia
