  3. Susan,

    You are a beautiful person and you are my friend. That is all that matters!

    1. Awww!!! You are such a wonderful friend to me too, Sue. I sure wish we didn't live half a world apart. I just know we'd be close friends if we lived near each other. :) Even half a world away, you inspire me, and help me grow. I love you!! ♥
