3: Melissa, What a special gift it is to have a lifelong friendship with you. All too often, we out grow our childhood friends, and go our own ways. How amazing it is for me to think about how we met on account of our parents' friendship and created one ourselves. Knowing you has been an absolute blessing. I have always thought that God did not give me a sister because he knew I would have you. I have also many happy memories of us: I knew you when you were young, and now know you as the beautiful woman who is beginning a new chapter in her life. When I think of you and Ryan, I have no doubt that God had a direct hand in the two of you meeting. I could not have asked for a better person to love and take care of my Sis. I am so honored to be part of your journey. "This is my wish for you: comfort on difficult days, smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds, laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart, hugs when your spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see, friendship to brighten your being, faith so that you can believe, confidence for when your doubt, courage to know yourself, patience to accept the truth, and love to complete your life.' I believe that Ryan i s the love that completes your life. Melissa, I am so proud of you. I love you very much and I look forward to being a part of the many years of happiness that await you and Ryan. Your Sis, Kelly
4: Melissa, You are an amazing person and friend. I am so happy for you and 'lil bro. I knew you two would like each other! I wish you both many years of happiness and pray that the Lord guides you and blesses you always. I love you, Jessie.
