53: Karen, Personal Vows When I first met you, looking into those clear blue eyes, beautiful smile and fantastic laugh, I thought to myswlf what a lucky guy I would be if I could date you. Then in New Orleans, I remember the exact date and time I fell in love with you. oI thought to myself how lucky I would be if she fell in love with me too. As our relationship progressed through thick and thin, I experienced the great power of your unconditional love from the heart. You reminded me of how powerful love is and how it can move mountains-more importancomingtly-always keeping us coming back to one another-guiding us. And regarding the great power of love we have in our relationshipI thought to myself I would be so lucky if Karen and I got married. Today, my dreams have come true. You are the one. I look forward to joining your hand in marriage today and getting ready to enter into our next chapter of our love story. I Love You. Lance Lance, I have found someone in you that is just right for me. I can't explain the magic or why it should be. It wasn't long after I met you that I knew I loved you and I wanted to spend the rest of my life with you. The longer I know you, the more I fall in love with you. It's your patience, support, and affection that stand out when I think of you. Together we have faced challenges and we conquered them. You are my strength! In my dreams I have always known you, and today my dreams come true. I Love You. Karen
