17: Jilly, I can’t believe my little sister is getting married. It seems like just yesterday we were running around together letting our imaginations go wild and being each other’s best friends. Some things don’t change. You have been my best friend for 28 years and it seems like we only grow closer as time goes on. I have felt so blessed to be able to call you my sister. You are the one person who I can always count on and what I love most is how when I need you, you are there and you can cry with me or laugh with me or just be by my side. I know that Alec and Brian have come into our lives and are taking on that role of best friend and partner, but I also know that there is no relationship quite like a sister, especially ours. I also think both Brian and Alec have accepted that...yes, they are our husbands, but we are sisters, and no, we will never stop talking 12 times a day or keep anything secret from each other. I am so happy you have found Brian, I love the way he loves you and how much you love him back. There are so few couples who have what you have and you must treasure it and never take it for granted. As you and Brian become husband and wife, I wish you both all the best that life has to offer. I have learned so much about marriage. Alec and I have been through it all, from our wedding and Chase’s birth being the happiest days of our lives to sharing some of the darkest hours together, but through it all we remain committed, strong and unbroken and that is what matters. What I have come away with thus far is quite simple; never take one single day for granted; every moment together is truly a gift. So my little sister, my best friend, enjoy your special day and I know you are going to be the most beautiful bride. I am so proud of you, I love you so much and I could not be happier for you and Brian. Love, Heather
21: Dear Jilly, It is crazy how quickly time passes. If feels like just yesterday that we were playing school in the basement. Now you are beginning a new chapter in your life and there is so much to look forward to: future vacations, holidays and most importantly our family growing up (old) together. You are my sister, my walking partner, a roommate, a listener, a bridesmaid, a teacher, my marathon running partner, a vacationer, a neighbor but most importantly a great friend. I am very fortunate to have you so close. You and Brian are two peas in a pod and it has been fun watching you fall in love together. This is such an exciting time in your life and I couldn't be happier for you. I can't wait for your wedding day! I love you, Tina
23: We have shared so many laughs, memories, and fun times together that it seems crazy to think you took me under your wings at QU only 6 years ago. No matter where life has taken us, we have always managed to stay in touch, remain close, and we are always able to pick back up where we left off like no time has passed. You are one of the most thoughtful, caring, fun, and free spirited individuals I know. I can’t thank you enough for being such a good friend, and for being the kind of friend that I know I will have for the rest of my life. I will always be here for you. Now that you have found your “Prince Charming,” I couldn’t be happier for you. You deserve the best and you certainly have found him. It has been so fun to see your love for each other grow. I’ll never forget when I came to visit and I met Brian for the first time, when you introduced him to me, you were gitty, smiling from ear to ear, and you were head over heels for him. I knew then, at that moment, that you and Brian had something special. I am so honored to be a part of your special day. I wish you both a life time full of love and happiness. You are going to be an absolutely stunning bride and I can’t wait. I love you Jilly!
25: Oh the memories...From our Laguna Beach trip, out of control Christmas parties, Lifetime movie chats and fun days and nights in PB... To our late nights being a Whiskey Girl and our early morning crazy runs all over San Diego, I couldn't imagine doing any of them without you be my side. Love you lots! I feel so blessed to have you in my life and I am so happy for you and Brian!
27: When you have faith you open yourself up to the best opportunities of your life. It was no coincidence that Jill and I both flocked to the west coast, and will now be neighbors back on the east coast. We are two peas in a pod. She was my waitress one night at Whiskey Girl in downtown San Diego. I was meeting a friend for drinks and Jill chose our table to serve over another table of hot guys. She came over and asked for our ID's and noticed we were from CT. It was love at first sight. We started talking about the east coast and our interest in training for a marathon. From there we instantly bonded like sisters and become roommates. I knew from that moment on I had met a life long best friend. It was fate. We will soon be neighbors in Boston and will continue to share many more adventures and chapters of our lives together. I love you so much Jill aka my sweet cheeks!! Many good times ahead xoxo
29: Jill I could not be more excited for you and Brian! It seems like just yesterday that we were rollerblading down dorm road and talking about crushes. You have been there for me over the past ten years and I am so excited and honored to be there for you on your wedding day. I love you so much and could not be happier for you and Brian! Congratulations Mrs. Coppney!
