Two years ago I met the most stubborn, cynical, logical dude outside Emerson Hall at SPU. For a year I entered a life of challenges - emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual - only finding comfort in his stubbornness, logic, and general distrust of the world. One year later I met him again at sophomore move in to realize I met my best friend and the love of my life. For the past year I’ve been with my rock, my love, my pain, my support, and ultimately my equal. I have no idea where I would be now if it wasn’t for him as he helped me pick up the pieces and allowed me to put me back together again after being at my lowest and worst breaking point. All I can say is thank you for this year full of love and patience. Happy anniversary, Martin Jr. I love you.
