We found each other after a devastating end to another relationship, and I thank you for helping pick up the pieces and turn it into something beautiful.  I will forever be indebted to you.
  2. You Never Faltered and You had Faith in Our Relationship: I was young and may have questioned life, our relationship and other common things a young woman questions, from time to time, but you always reminded me how perfect we were together.  believed you and still do.
