When I was five I remember telling my mother one day we would go to Hawaii together, The trip was my way of making good on that promise. Always one to help me with my goals, Natalie stepped up and paid up for half of the trip. We planned for a year (and paid for it about that long too). We made a big surprise out of the trip and for once in my life I think my mother was happy. The shared memory of that trip was one I have cherished.

The good news is Natalie is still by my side, supporting me through this painful time. I don't know how I got so lucky to have such a wonderful partner by my side, but I would be lost without her. Thanking her everyday for picking me to fall in love with.
