A Sweet Thank You Note

I married Kristen and David a few years ago and recently this touching note arrived with the birth announcement of their first child;

Reverend Lodge - We have been reflecting back on the beautiful wedding ceremony you put together for us nearly 4 years ago. How true those words still are for us today.

“These are the hands that will tenderly hold your chidren...” .Our journey to become parents was not easy, but just like Jimmy V said, “Don’t give up. Don’t ever give up.”

Thank you for reminding us how precious love can be. We are incredibly lucky to have met you.
