My cousin, Stephanie, got married last Friday. She and her first husband (now deceased), have two wonderful children, one being my Goddaughter, LEL.
John, I don't know you, but I know LEL and her brother like you. I know that Stephanie, who is the closest I have to a sister, is happy with you, and you must be in love with her. The three of them all deserve the very best. Stay treating her well, and welcome to the family, Jon.
Stephanie, I'm so happy for you. I think [your late brother] Dougie, [who would have turned 47 this month] would be very happy for you, and your [late] father, too. We all just want you to be happy, to have the best life can offer to you.
I really wish I could have been there. May all of you have many happy blessed years together. Cheers. Love ya.
