To My Dearest Michelle,

      You are the sweetest wife any guy could ever have. You are beautiful inside and out. Words cannot fully express how deeply I love you!

     You are such a great mother & grandmother. You are so sensitive to others and have such a heart to encourage those around you and point them to Jesus. 

     You are my best friend. We have been through a lot together with your parents and my dad passing away, Josie being born very premature, Jubilee being stillborn & counseling our kids through the teenage years.

      God has been faithful to carry us through the hard times, to draw us close together and to provide for our growing family.

     You are the greatest blessing in my life next to Jesus forgiving my sins and giving us eternal life.

     Thank you for birthing all 19 of our kids and being such a virtuous wife and mother. Thank you for opening up our home to Tyler, he is a Joy!

     Thank you for loving me in spite of the times I have wrong responses or wrong attitudes. You are a precious ruby. 

     It is hard to believe this year we will celebrate 35 years of marriage, I am looking forward to the next 35 years with you!

I love you, Jim Bob
