I promised to encourage your compassion, because it’s what drives your need to serve others, and it’s what inspires me to live more compassionately too.
I promised to cherish all of your unique eccentricities, because they are what make sure that I smile every day.
I promised to not only support your dreams, but to help you reach them too, because your ambition is what motivates me to dream big too.
And lastly, I promised to love the person that you are, fully and unconditionally, because without you, I wouldn’t be the person that I am, and the person that you love.

Exactly one year ago today, I promised all of these things to you. I still do.
I love you Robert Duff. Thank you for loving me back.
