David and Family

Dear Mom and Dad,

We've watched you two interact for years, and one of our favorite insights into your affection for one another is when Dad, often after dinner, asks Mom to come sit next to him. Mom stops what she's doing (she's always doing something) and happily goes over to be close to her husband for a while. It's not an exchange that most people would even notice, but whenever we see it, it strikes us as a very sweet example of your continued affection for one another. That affection, that joy in simply being together, we're sure, is at the heart of your forty happy years. Thank you for the loving example you are to us.

David and Kris
