Happy Birthday my dear friend. It was said best in the video, just hearing your name brings a smile to anyone’s face. This is certainly true for me and I am truly honored to get to know you and call you a friend. I look forward to getting to see you again when it is safe to do so. Thank you for being a pillar of hope and compassion in our community, it is incredibly inspiring.
