38: I'm not a speaker or writer, but I can't miss this opportunity to tell you both how much you mean to me. I'm so proud of you both for sticking it out the last 60 years because it wasn't always easy. Mom, I know you are not going to like what I'm about to say, but I believe the stubbornness comes from the Ellis's. Dad you're not off the hook either. You have some strange ways too. | Love, Sam | The one word I think of when I think of you two is "sacrifice." You both have made many sacrifices, especially Mom, and I just want you both to know that I appreciate it.
