FC: Michael's 30th Birthday ~ 04/01/11
1: Michael Your friendship has been such a gift in my life. As a person, your kind heart, generous nature, wisdom, and integrity continually shine through, reminding me of how grateful I am to be your sister. Have an amazing 30th birthday Michael. I love you so much, Jen | With every birthday card I have told you how much you both mean to me, but over the past thirty years you have become so important to so many people, on this special occasion it only seemed appropriate to give others a chance to tell you as well.
2: Michael, you are the love of my life. My favorite part of every day is the moment before we go to sleep each night and it's just you and me cuddled together. Our life together is a combination of comforting and exciting - as we both change and grow, it feels like we get closer and closer. Each day that passes makes me love you more. You are the most intelligent man I have ever known and I'm always fascinated by the perspective you have on the world. You are also heartbreakingly kind and generous. To top it off, you're tall, dark, and handsome! Just writing this I want to pinch myself - how is it possible that you are my husband? When I really think about who you are and all you give to me, I feel completely overwhelmed with gratitude. Thank you for supporting all my dreams. Thank you for letting me take care of you and for taking care of me. Thank you for letting me be your chaver. Michael, together we will raise a family, travel the world, and pursue our dreams together. It doesn't get much better than this, my Michael! I love you this much: | Love, Your Anna
3: Michael, "EXTRAORDINARY" is what you were rated by your superiors at Union Bank recently. I am so proud of how much you have succeeded in you career. But more importantly "EXTRAORDINARY" is what you display in every aspect of you life. You are an amazing son, brother, friend and most recently a husband. Your easy demeanor, intelligence and most of all witty personality draws people to you. I could not be prouder to say you are my son. I love you mom | Michael, I have never met a more even tempered, gracious person who displays such intelligence and confidence. I am in awe of how you set goals in life and accomplish them at a such a quick pace. Spending time with you just hanging out and discussing sports are special memories to me. Of course our night out with the family for your birthday to Dodger Stadium was most enjoyable and will always be remembered. I am so proud to be part of your life. I love you, Marty | Michael, "EXTRAORDINARY" is what you were rated by your superiors at Union Bank recently. I am so proud of how much you have succeeded in your career. But more importantly "EXTRAORDINARY" is what you display in every aspect of your life. You are an amazing son, brother, friend and most recently a husband. Your easy demeanor, intelligence and most of all witty personality draws people to you. I could not be prouder to say you are my son. I love you, Mom
4: Finally going to the Indy 500 and being there with you guys are one of my Top 10 All Time Special Moments of all time!!! | Jeremy & Michael, We've probably taken hundreds of pictures over the last 12 years so you must be wondering why this picture? Well lets face it when will we all get back to China and have to fish for our lunch? It was the trip of a lifetime! You both look like little boys wondering “why couldn't we just go to a restaurant? You both look like studs! Jeremy looks like he's search for something, maybe a fish or a dog? Michael wants to go back to the Beijing market place and “make a deal” on polo shirts! Here's the bottom line, it reminds me of how very special the two of you are. The joy, laughter, empathy, compassion, sensitivity and love of life you so openly share with me is the biggest blessing of all. I know its your 30th and you expect presents, but I wanted you to know how much I value our relationship and know that the gift I get from having you both in my life is much greater than any gift I could give you. So to many many more years of you guys being my tennis partners, travel pals, brunch buddies and trusted advisers. Love you both, Reggie | From China to Pomona... 0 to 120 mph in just 1 year!!! | I love that we can do our birthdays together. Even if we have to travel 10,114 miles to make it happen! | M & J ~ You guys are so much fun. To say that you are a tremendous source of joy for me is an understatement. I cherish you and the wonderful relationship that we are so blessed to share. For always, you are my special boys!!! I love you mega-ton-bunches, Dad | Always knew ELVIS would come back. How cool...
5: We are so glad you joined our family! Happy 30th birthday Michael! Lots of Love, Kathryn and Tom | Happy 30th Birthday Michael!! You are a wonderful addition to our family and we feel so fortunate to have you in our lives. Thank you for being such a great husband, brother and uncle!! We look forward to spending many special times together in the future. Lot of Love, Stefon, Grace, and Maceo | Hey Mike, Remember when you got me that NYC Not For Tourist guide? That's when you won me over. Happy to have you in the family. Happy 30th. - Jane. | WE LOVE YOU!
6: Dear Michael: Wishing a Happy 30th Birthday to one of the most important men in my life, which turned out much more difficult than I thought it would be. Do I start at the very beginning and recall the first time my 2 year old cousins made me laugh by assigning "lewd" names to a pair of rabbits? Or maybe start at the pre-teen years when I could school you playing basketball on your driveway, and when ping pong became a dangerous sport. Perhaps focusing on this past decade would be more concise, considering that's probably when I truly realized how incredibly lucky I was to have you in my life. I am so grateful for the close relationship we share, despite any physical distances between us. Without question, this new decade will bring you amazing new experiences and memorable moments. I look forward to being there to share some of those moments with you. I hope you have a wonderful birthday. Just remember: Growing old is inevitable, Growing up is optional. Happy 30th! Love, Amy | Michael & Jeremy, You're such amazing people and I truly cherish the relationship that I have with each of you. I'm so happy that I didn't drop that box of chain on you guys. Happy birthday!!!! Love, Martin
7: Happy 30th birthday Michael! Though I know it will be hard for this birthday to compete with jumping out of a plane with your literal other half last year, I hope it is filled with smiles and laughter (as opposed to the tears and screams that may have played a role last year). It has been so wonderful getting to know you and Anna over the past year. Though I will maintain that you and Jeremy are extremely different in some ways, you share so many attributes that make the two of you such impressive and genuine individuals. Michael, in the short time I have known you, it has become clear that you are extremely intelligent (you are the only one Jeremy sincerely trusts for career advice), humorous, gregarious, amorous (yes, I looked up a synonym for "loving") and sharp. I feel lucky to have stumbled across the Bliss brothers and I look forward to growing closer and sharing more birthdays together in the future. Love and best wishes, Alissa
8: Hey Guys, Here's to an amazing journey thus far, with many chapters ahead of you both. We miss you terribly and feel so blessed to have had you here for the time we did. What a gift-- Chinese Dinners, Batman Costumes, Ski Trips, LA. Enjoy the ride and the celebration. We are sending sweet love from Berkeley. Love you madly, Cheers! Alan, Deedee and Dylan | THE BLISS BOYS Who always give us so many joys. They're our wonderful nephews, kind, loving and sweet, since arriving on the scene, they've been a rare and special treat. We've been a part of their lives, watched them grow and thrive, how fortunate are we, to know and love, Michael & Jeremy. Happy 30th birthday As always, all our love to you both, Aunt Judy and Uncle Bob
9: Happy 30th Birthday Bliss Bros. As I reflect on the memories and images of the past, I am amazed at how the time flies. It was not long ago I remember you two pip squeaks running around your house in PJ’s. I’ve always felt close to you guys despite the difference in our age. Your lives have been so full and rich. Filled with lots of love and activities; baseball, football, academics, martial arts, car races, snowboarding, etc. You guys have done so much, and if you haven’t done it you are probably planning on doing it. It’s been an honor to watch you grow up and become the awesome dudes that you are. Your growth and development have certainly touched me and my family as well. From the time you both bravely stepped up to the microphone at our wedding to wish Michelle and I the very best, to your subsequent visits to Santa Cruz where you established meaningful relationships with Kyle and Jesse. Relationships built on a rock solid foundation of video games, junk food, teenage discussions, and Facebook. Incidentally, Michelle remembers the look of amazement on young Kyle’s face when he saw you two together in the same room for the first time. To that point he thought you were one person. You’ve both served as amazing role models for all of us really. Well rounded and well educated gentlemen, with a high regard for family and community, and guys who know how to have fun! For that we are extremely grateful. As you move forward with your lives, we wish you all the best in your personal and professional endeavors. Michael, all our love to you and Anna as you continue to grow your wonderful union and home life. Jeremy, enjoy all your worldly travels and being with Alissa. May you both get the most out of all the experiences you’ve worked so hard to attain. As with everything you’ve done in the past, I’m sure you will handle yourselves with grace, charm, and all the dignity you bring to this world! Mazel Tov. Mucho Mucho Love, Donny, Michelle, Kyle and Jesse
10: Jer & Michael, All I can say is that I am very happy we reconnected and that your family is back in my life. The two of you have made an impact on my childhood that you may never truly understand. When a man needed his friend the most, both of you were there to help ease my pain. Together we laid the foundation for a friendship that I truly cherish and at another time might not have completely appreciated. I wish you both nothing but the best and I look forward to sharing meaningful moments with you & your ladies in the future. Happy 30th fellas. Love, Jason | Michael and Jeremy, I've known you guys for well over a decade. It's been a friendship I've really valued, and one for which I'm very grateful. Some highlights: From the early days when you first befriended me at Cal because you (mistakenly) thought I could be your connection to the cute girls on campus because I happened to have gone to high school with a couple of them. (Boy did you misread that!) For assembling a championship-caliber intramural softball team, on the verge of greatness, only to have victory wrenched from us by a certain saboteur. Damn you, Steve Nagata! For Michael, helping me line up my first job out of college while I was still a listless, shiftless, slouch. On the other hand, I was never better at golf than at that time and my game's been in steady decline since I started working full-time, so maybe I shouldn't be completely grateful. For being, along with the nascent liberal blogosphere, friendly voices of reason during the dark days of our American imperial adventures. Thank goodness those days are behind us
11: Mike and Jeremy Ever since our parents first met I have always looked up to you guys. From sitting outside by the pool to eating family dinners at the round glass table in the kitchen, I've always been inspired with the talks that we've shared. Even when you guys were teaching people for the SATs, I thought that was insane! Nobody I knew was doing that. Now as the past 5-10 years have progressed, the way I look up to you guys has only grown. I am beyond happy with the two life paths you guys have chosen and only see more success to come. 30 is just another number, but a benchmark to embark on new opportunities and adventures. I hope soon enough we will all reside close to each other so we can continue to grow up together again for second round. Jeremy, New York was amazing, could not have been the same without your BALLER penthouse room. And Mike, don't ever stop with your advise and wisdom because it sticks with me every day. See you soon guys! Happy birthday! Griff | Dear Michael and Jeremy, When we first met you, we could hardly tell you apart. However, since then we have seen you both grow into your own with the qualities and traits we can only hope to wish for in our own children. Wishing you all the best today and always. Happy 30th Birthday! Love, Loren, Holly, Aiden and Alex | Dear Michael and Jeremy, It's always so fun to see you and we are lucky to have you part of our lives. You always make our Jewish Holiday dinners extra special! We hope you have the happiest birthday!!! All our Love, The Barsocchini Family
12: Dear Jeremy and Michael, Elliot and I want to first wish you both a wonderful and very happy 30th birthday and hope that your entire lives will continue to be as fabulous as they seem to have been so far. You are both so blessed with the love and support from so many. You are gorgeous, brilliant and so much fun as you both possess fabulous wit and are so truly funny. We have nothing but fond and heartfelt memories of you both. Many years back when you came to stay with us for 8 days over Rosh a Shana, we found you both to be completely delightful, fun, engaging, brilliant and funny as hell. We still find ourselves many times since talking about the wonderful time we shared and how great you both are. You were both so witty and had incredible timing. I have a few favorites, but one was when we were about to get into the car to go to the drive-in and I said “OK Jeremy get in and you turned around and said “I am not Jeremy”. So I turned to your brother and said “Ok Jeremy get in the car” and he told me he wasn’t Jeremy either. This went on for several minutes. It made me laugh so hard. It was truly amazing that at such a young age that you both were smart enough to play on people and were so darn funny while doing it and knew it. My other favorite story was that when you would walk home from school I would ask you when I saw you if you were hungry and you would always say “yes”. You would come over and I would feed you both. You ate everything and I enjoyed watching you eat as neither of my kids would ever eat and it was a pleasure to feed you. Coming from a mother, I am not sure until you have your own kids that you will understand the pleasure it gave me. Thanks. On that Rosh a Shana, my parents got the pleasure to know you all as well and they too fell in love with you all. They just thought you were so cute and so brilliant and nice and they were right. Thank you for being so kind and good to my parents. They were so wonderful and it was so great of you to treat them so well. They always thought of your family as part of ours. That warmed my heart. Now that you are grown men you have not changed. You are as delightful as always. Brilliant and interesting as always and have achieved great success personally. We applaud your continued success and feel great pride for you and your family because of how wonderful you turned out to be. You are still gentlemen, funny, smart, kind, caring and just solid human beings who have brought so much good into so many lives. It is a pleasure being able to write this to you and I could go on and on. We just want you to know that our family loves you and always will. You will always have a special place in our hearts. Know that this world is a better place because you are here. Have a wonderful birthday and may g-d grant you great health and many years to enjoy life with those you love and who certainly love you. With much love, admiration and respect, Pat and Elliot | Michael, It all started in 1984 when I met your mom at Children First Pre School. We became instant friends! I'll never forget when one of you (I don't know who) slept at our house for 2 nights and we, Greg included, barely knew you. If you were the one, you sure were a brave, independent, 4 year old. As the years went by, when you were on the same teams as Greg, through the temple, and numerous havarah activities, you were always smart, outgoing and non-stop talking. You made Phil really happy when you decided to attend CAL and root for its teams. It's great that you and Greg reconnected after college. Parents, who are friends, like it when their children choose to be friends. Because of that, we got to know Anna and happily attend your wedding. What a fabulous weekend we had! Anna had a difficult job to do, taking over Jeremy's role as your other half. From what we see, it's working out beautifully. We hope the next 30 years are as great as the past 30 have been. HAPPY 30th BIRTHDAY! Love, Anne & Phil
13: From Pony Baseball and 5 errors to occasionally showing up to AP classes... to all the crazy nights at Macadam and cleaning up the next morning... from Buffalo airport pickups and Santa Monica bars... from 'Randro' and Cedar's to surfing in Bali... to NYC and credit card roulette at Bryant Park (sorry Mikey) ... from 'chicks are horrible' to 'now that I'm married I can get any girl I want'. Looking forward to the next 30... Love you guys, -Joe- | To my favorite twins! Thank you both for all the wonderful memories throughout the years. Remember senior year when you guys got that girl to follow Joe all night long, right before you guys left for the summer. He was pissed, that was classic! Although we don't get see each other often, it is always great to see you guys and hear your latest stories. Welcome to the 30's. It was a little scary at first, but it hasn't been too bad. 30's is the new 20's!!! So you guys have 10 more years before things hit the fan :) May they be filled with lots of love, excitement, adventures, and happiness!!! Happy Birthday. Love, Khang
14: Michael, I always thought you were smarter, better looking, and cooler then Jeremy. It was not until way past when I met you that I figured out that you were Michael. So my whole theory got messed up. Since you are now 30, and I can tell who you are, I am sure that I was right. Happy birthday, Mr. Responsible. ~Todd | Dear Michael- If there are two of you and you're both turning 30, does that make you 60?? Getting older never happened to a better guy. Since I've already turned 30 it feels good to rub it in a little :) You have found such a perfect partner to race through life with - I wish you and Anna the most beautiful next 30 years together! I hope 30 makes you look around you and feel proud of everything you have accomplished, and the good person you are. It's nerdy to say, for sure, but you really are a good person. Happiest, happy birthday to you! Love, Laurie | Michael and Jeremy ~ Happy 30th! I can't believe how fast time flies :-) Looking at these photos reminded me of what a great trip we had. Its memories with family and friends like these that make our birthday milestones so meaningful. Here is to many more years of wonderful happiness and good times. Lots of love, Jen G. | Michael and Jeremy, I wish you both the best birthday. You both have achieved so much in such a short period of time. I can only imagine what the next 30 will bring for the both of you. Happy 30th day Matt
15: Happy Birthday Guys! Welcome to a new, fabulous decade! We have all shared so many happy memories together in the last 15 years and I look forward to many many more celebrations together. It is hard to believe we are all 30?!? Where has the time gone? From homecoming, to high school shenanigans, to birthdays, engagements and weddings, I am so happy to have shared all of these special events with you both. Thank you for your continued friendship throughout the years!! Cheers to you both on this very special birthday. Happy Birthday, Tracy p.s. Brad wishes you both a very happy 30th too! | Michael and Jeremy, I have many fond memories of hanging out with you both. They range from competing with you on multiplication tables in 3rd grade to our awesome "study sessions" in high school (should have had better grades with all of the studying!) and even hanging out at with each of you individually at sporting events. Jeremy I am so glad that you were able to come to the Cal game with my family and me. It meant so much to share that with you. Mike, you have always been the nice one and no matter how long we go without speaking we are always able to pick our friendship right back up. I often feel transplanted back in middle school when we hang out and I always have so much fun with you both. Happy 30th Birthday! Man we are getting old :) Love, Marisa
16: Michael and Jeremy, We've been best friends for almost 30 years. From playing "Risk" in your playroom, to winning "History Day" (and yes we won in my mind), to champagne on NYE, to being in each other's weddings, we've had a lifetime of memories together. Have a happy and healthy 30th, and here's to another 30 years of friendship. ERIC | Happy 30th Birthday Michael! Wishing you all the best on this exciting day. From Berkeley to LA to Austin, we have enjoyed sharing so many great memories and look forward to lots more fun times together. Love, Brooke and Jeff | 1986
17: Happy Birthday to the funny one and the good looking one. We'll let you figure out which one is which. Either way, we couldn't be more glad to have you both as friends Love, Stef & Dan | Hey Guys, I just wanted to say happy big 30 to you guys. You guys have both been two of my best friends over the last 15 years. I can't believe that it has been that long and how much we have all gone through. All the support throughout the years in pursuit of becoming a doctor meant a lot to me, even if you didn't get that at your wedding speech Michael...:). Jeremy, we have partied in Tel Aviv, rode bikes through the Chinese country side, hung out in NYC, and hopefully will be chillin in Peru some time. I think the best has been all the hilarious inside jokes though, even though I have been the cause of most of them. Whether the girls have been ducking weird, gum being the best, me passing out and hitting my head on the toilet, or throwing the best rave in history in high school. You guys are the definition of great friends. Thanks for all the great times and for all the ones to come. Happy Birthday Guys, Jonas
18: Hi Michael and Jeremy, Happy 30th Birthday to you both and many many more in good health and happiness!!! Ed and I have watched you both grow up from birth and attended both your Bar Mitzvahs, many family gathering at the Agoura house and many other family occasions. It is always such a pleasure to see you both. Michael, your wedding was a wonderful time and we were so happy to be there. Jeremy, when you get married, if we are invited, we will be there too. You both have grown up to be wonderful men who are educated, traveled and successful. We wish you all the best in all your future endeavors. You both have accomplished so much already in your 30 years. Both your Mom and Dad must be so very proud of both of you as is everyone who knows you!! All our love, Ed and Sharon | Wishing a Happy Birthday to you both. Wow! You guys are old! I should have probably written this in all caps. But really wishing you guys a great birthday and many more. Hope we can get together soon. Cousin Jason | Dear Jeremy and Michael, It's been double our pleasure, double our fun having the two of you as part of our family. We love being with you individually, in tandem, and with your significant others. Happy 30th Birthday! Love, Mark & Cheryl Mallin
19: Happy 30th Birthday Michael and Jeremy! We miss you both and hope to see you very soon! Viv, Jimmy & Mia | HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE FAMOUS (OR INFAMOUS) “BLISS BROTHERS!” Although I wasn’t “allowed” to have both of you in my classroom due to the rules about twins, I had the joy of interacting with both of you through other activities like Student Council and Math Group. You were always enthusiastic, interested, inquisitive, full of good ideas, and involved. You showed initiative, you questioned and you challenged and you led! What a gift to have been your teacher and to remember with such warmth! Then, recently, I had the good fortune to see you both at Tracy Still’s wedding and to marvel at the beautiful, strong men you have become. And so, dear ones, “May the sun always find you, May joy walk beside you, May you star in your life every day.” Love and Affection, Annie Haas | To the "Bwiss Bwoders" There are plenty of goofy stories of my year with you guys, you were such terrific kids. I wanted to wish you a Happy 30th Birthday and would love it if you would stop by and say hi the next time you are in the area. ~ Mark Cantor
20: Dear Michael, Happy 30th! So many wonderful days were spent with your over the past three decades. I often reminisce about your days in kindergarten as one of the "Three Musketeers" singing The Purple People Eater song, and going to the 5th grade class to work on computers. As you got older I remember you participating in karate, basketball, and playing on baseball teams, attending Jewish holiday celebrations, attending birthday parties and performing in band recitals. The one event that stands out most is the extraordinary project you, Jeremy and Eric so passionately obsessed over for History Day LA project: The Munich Agreement: Help or Hindrance. Your dedication to excellence was seen over months of preparation with research, writing and creating a phenomenal poster board. The result truly exemplified your intellect that would carry over into your adult life. Of course, I'll always remember the day you and sweet Anna got married in Texas. I'm proud to know you and will always cherish the shared memories. May the next thirty years bring you everything you desire. Wishing you joy, love, laughter and beautiful surprises. Love, Hilary
21: Mike & Jeremy~ Some of my favorite memories of when I was a kid was taking the trip to Agoura to hang out with "the twins." Whether it was playing video games with you guys or showing you all about my rotisserie basketball league... it was always fun. I'd even like to think that I am responsible for your successful careers... after all, how much did you learn about crunching numbers from starting your own rotisserie league based on mine I wonder... Have a very happy birthday, you two... I'm really happy we've reconnected over the past few years. The best to you both in all your future endeavors! Love, Your cuz... Rick(y) | "Sharing a weekend of Love and Blisses" You boys and Jennifer have always been a special part of our lives. Uncle Sammy loved being with you. What fun it was to see all of you light up when we arrived with those yummy chocolate eclairs. Happy 30th birthday. Love you, Aunt Evy
22: Michael and Jeremy Our relationship is very unique. I knew you before you were born and I used to speak to both of you while you were still in your mother’s womb. You didn’t have any names so I called you number one and number two but I don’t know now who was who. In any event, you’re both number one now, not only to me, but to anyone who knows you as a relative, friend, associate or client. If Eddie and Michael were here they’d be signing this letter as well. They adored you both and I speak to them in my prayers so I know they still feel that way. Happy 30th birthday and many more to come. Shloshim is a lucky number in Hebrew, may you multiple it by four. Love "Grandma" Dot
23: 30 years old! Welcome to the club! Considering we met in preschool, I guess that means I’ve known each of you for almost 30 years. While we grew up together and you both got to witness the height of my athletic achievement (sadly for me that came in elementary school), I must say that I’ve enjoyed our post college years the most. From tearing up the clubs in Madrid and New York with Jeremy to nights out in LA, poker games and countless trips to Chavez Ravine with Michael, I always have a great time with you guys. And that doesn’t even count the shenanigans we’ve gotten into when we’re all together, such as Ryan’s wedding in New Orleans, Michael’s bachelor party in SD and the random times Jeremy has been back in LA (stories have been intentionally left out). You guys are great people and great friends. I feel fortunate to have you in my life and am looking forward to seeing what the next 30 years have in store for us. Happy Birthday, Greg | Michael and Jeremy, I am so fortunate to have you as friends and whether its when I was living in LA or in NY, I loved being able to spend time with each of you. Although you both have different personalities, there are many wonderful traits you share. You are both genuine and caring of others and some how you make any situation fun bringing a smile to everyone's face (especially mine!) I am so fortunate to have been able to strengthen our friendship as we have gotten older and see you grow into such wonderful men. Have a happy birthday and flip a coin to see which one of you has to be my neighbor again next :) ~Jess | Dear Michael and Jeremy, Happy 30th Birthday! It's crazy to think that we've been friends for 15 years! This picture is of Jeremy and I celebrating Michael and Anna's awesome wedding weekend. You guys are the best! Love, Ryan
24: My Dearest Michael and Jeremy, To be honest, I am beginning to tear up a bit as I gather my thoughts. Your emotions tend to run wild, once you become a Mom. Although, I am pretty convinced this emotion comes straight from a place inside me, where I keep those dearest to my heart Jen is such a wonderful person for creating such a beautiful gift and for giving me the opportunity to tell you both how much you mean to me. Indeed the years have brought some separation, as it should. You two have grown to become (as predicted) strong, handsome and extremely successful Men. Your travels and experiences through life are remarkable and exactly what I envisioned for you both. I very often think back and giggle over such silly things and smile over such wonderful memories. I remember being somewhat of a confident girl. I always saw life differently then others, felt like an old soul at times, and dreamed of accomplishing so much. It wasn't until I met you guys, where I was convinced that I was not alone. Your charm, tender hearts, intelligence, and more than anything else, strong sense of humor was by far what made you guys irresistible. I remember disliking the fact that not one of you were interested in dating me BUT loved you even more because of it. I didn't know it at the time, but later in life understood how important our friendship was and appreciated it tremendously. Not a day goes by where I don't think about one of you. Somehow and someway I will always be there for the two of you. Whether it be a wedding, new baby or your 40th birthday..........I will be present in some form. Hence, the wedding gift to Michael. You both are forever in my heart. Happy Birthday Michael. Happy Birthday Jeremy. May the world receive 30 more years of Bliss!! Your good (and old) friend, Melissa (Friedel) Stepan
25: To The "Bwiss Bwoders" There are plenty of goofy stories from my year with you guys, you were such terrific kids. I wanted to wish you a Happy 30th Birthday and would love it if you would stop by and say hi the next time you are in the area. ~Mark Cantor | That's the school that we are proud to go to...
