FC: "All you need in the world is love and laughter. That's all anybody needs. To have love in one hand and laughter in the other." - August Wilson
1: September 2011 Dear Deirdre, I am honored to have you as a bridesmaid in my wedding party and blessed to have you as a friend. Since kindergarten, our friendship has grown so much. While making this, I've found that there aren't enough pages in this album to be able to capture all of our memories. It seems like we can go months without seeing each other and we're in the same place where we left off. It's not that we haven't changed, but there is always an understanding. I've learned so much from you, Deirdre, and I hope that I can emulate your kindness and wisdom. We've grown up since our days in plaid skirts and sweater vests, but we haven't grown apart. Thank you for being a part of my wedding party as I start my new life journey. I hope you enjoy paging through this book as much as I did assembling it. I love you! Love, Kerry
