Forgive me for HAVING to post this here this morning. It means THAT much to me, and she deserves the recognition, at the very least!

I would just like to say a VERY special Happy 16th Anniversary to the love of my life, MICHELLE; the most incredible caretaker a man could have ever asked for, and a wonderful human being on top of that.

Thorough all we have been through this last year, and with so much on our plates, you have always still taken the time to make sure I know that I am loved and cared for, in ways that only you know how to. You have gone so far above and beyond the dreams I had for a soul mate.

I just want to say thank you, I love you, and may you have a very special day. God put you in my life for a reason. I am grateful every day that he did.

Thank you for being you. THAT is the greatest gift I could have ever asked for.
I love you.

What a wonderful post! Michelle and Eric, I hope you enjoy every minute of this special day together! I remember just how thankful I was that we got to celebrate our 24th anniversary eight months after Chad's diagnosis. It was the second best present I ever got. The very best present was him still being here for the 25th!

What a touching thing to write, Eric. I think both you and Michelle are lucky to have found each other.
Have a great anniversary!

So you post here, I shall follow you again! LOL

My dear love, you are my love and my prince! I could have never imagined that I could have someone as wonderful and caring as you in my life! Sixteen years, five children, countless trials, so many successful triumphs, and a lifetime of love that fills my heart and soul with the needle pegged to the top! My life is so wonderful with your presence! When I am doubting my worthiness and beating myself up, your words of encouragement and undying love for me has always lifted me up and stood in the gap of my weakness!

On this day of our anniversary I reflect on all the years of pure bliss that your love and support has given me and will continue to give me for the rest of my life here. I look forward to every single day and moment I am gifted with you! I am so touched by your words! It liken to a hallmark moment; Let me visualize it; A bitter cold evening by the fire, staring out the window at the seasons white blanket over the canvas, and a cup of hot cocoa warming first my fingers, then my belly and finally my toes, the same way your heart warms me through and through!

You are my soft place to fall!

-Your so in love wife!

I wasn't going to cry, and you made me cry. THAT was one of the most touching a beautiful things you have ever written to me. I hope we aren't abusing the board. I am just so grateful to still be here with you for our anniversary. What a gift today is and you are, too.
May you continue to feel my love forever. I cherish every moment with you now as I did before, just paying MUCH closer attention that I even though possible!

I cannot think of a better place to share this most private time than here, with all of our dearest friends!

Happy Anniversary, you special woman of my dreams.

And to all of those missing a loved one today, know that they are watching over you and can feel you thinking of them today, and every day, too. This I am sure of.

God bless you, each and every one of you.

Apart from the obvious love, respect and admiration you have for each other you both have a wonderful way with words. You have achieved in 16 years what some people never achieve in a life time. God bless you both and your family.

Thank you to all of you who have taken them time to share your thoughts and wonderful words of love to us for our anniversary. We are attracted to you all for just being yourselves and sharing a journey that we all are experiencing!

We were taken a back with Chantal's post this evening and our hearts pour out to her and Lee in their moments of trouble. We hope that everyone is posting their prayers and support. We love the both of them and pray that this is just a temporary situation and that all can return to a stable and comfortable level for the both of them!

I know it's late in the day but I hope you guys had an incredible day. I understand the happiness. When I was diagnosed, my 23rd anniversary was one of the milestones that I wanted to hit. We celebrated it back on August 17th and I was so incredibly happy and emotional. At the risk of losing my tough guy image, I have to admit, I shed a few tears of joy. I so understand. It is truly a blessing to have someone to share a great marriage with.

Thank you ALL for sharing with us and posting here with us on our very special day!
It means so much to me to share this with all of you.

As Michelle said, on a much more serious note, let us all spend a few extra minutes tonight and today thinking of and praying for Lee and Chantal that they may hang tough through the weekend, and get some REAL answers on Monday at the Hospital.

May you two get some REST and we are thinking about you now.

Love to all of you and God bless you, each and every one.

I like your new profile picture. Looks like Michelle is fixing a "booboo"....if only that were the case! So glad you have a reason to celebrate.
