Forty years ago, on December 26, 1970, I married the person who has singularly done more to “raise me up” than any other individual. My wife/partner/dearest friend Anita brings such abiding joy to my life that I can’t even begin to express my gratitude to her or to adequately praise and honor her before my friends and acquaintances. There is so much that I could tell you about her that I can’t even really begin. She makes people laugh, she makes so many people know that they are loved and she is a great mother and grandmother. She encourages me, often when I am weak and need a good deal of raising up. My life has been far more rich and full because of my dear wife. When I saw this video I thought of her. Enjoy it everyone and think about those who “raise you up” this day as I celebrate my 40th anniversary with my bride today.
