dear angela,

i hope you are happy and well. i am writing (even though you will not read this) to thank you for giving me kelly...for imagining a better or different life for her. there is no doubt that g-d puts people in your path for a reason. i know that i would not be who i am or where i am today, without you. so, thank you for giving me the ultimate gift. i am imagining that in your own way, you are wishing kelly a happy 18th birthday, just as i am. love, becky

happy, happy 50th, colleen~

the world is a better place because of my friend colleen. i know she will laugh and roll her eyes up in her head, but trust me, it is true. she is fun, smart, faithful, and sincere. she cares about kids. she is insightful and honest. she is athletic (which i envy more than i can say). she is the best friend and just an all around wonderful person. she has put up with my ranting and raving for about 14 years. no small feat. we walk together almost every sunday and have been attempting to solve the problems of the world in that time- no luck yet, but with a little bit of luck, there will be 50 more years for us to try and get to the bottom of all of this. colleen is the kind of person that kind of makes you pinch yourself and realize that without friends our lives would be...well, you know. so, happy birthday colleen. i am going to finish this tag in a few minutes so that jerry can deliver your present. oh yeah, and congratulations on the best gift of all-your fab new job! love, becky
