BC: "Better than I was. More than I am. All of this happened by taking your hand." | To Lucas, my one true love, my other half, my best friend, and my husband, May you always remember the best day of our lives, the day we joined as one to live this life together forever. I can't even imagine what my life would be like without you in it, nor do I want to. You are the half that makes me whole and completes me. I look forward to every moment we spend together and am excited that I have the rest of our lives to do so. I promise to always love you, through all of our trials and blessings. I am glad that you are the person that I will be sharing these with. Thank you for loving me, despite my flaws. Thank you for supporting me in all that I do and pushing to be an even better person and wife. Thank you for all the joy you have given to me by making me your wife. I love you Lucas Wayne Kovtynovich. More than you will ever know. Love, Alora, your love and your wife to have and to hold forever (Smalls)
