    To My Brother-in-law Greg,
    I said a prayer for you to thank the Lord above for blessing me with your kindness and your friendship and love.
    I thanked God for the caring you’ve shown me through the years, for the closeness we’ve enjoyed in time of laughter and of tears.
    And so, I thank you from the heart for all you’ve done for me and I bless the Lord for giving me the best brother-in-law there could be.-á
    Until we meet again !
    -áLove , Debe Breimayer-Johnson
