And for that feeling of joy and thankfulness that comes from knowing that not just one, but two of your brothers have been fortunate enough to find beautiful love stories – and to marry a woman that will love them, cherish them, and care for them, for all their days. May you have many, many first dances, Jeffery and Katie Beth.
Here’s to gratitude, and to the start of new seasons!
