On December 12, 1989...

I took my girlfriend for a walk to the little gazebo behind the Hawaii LDS Temple. We had gone there often during our courtship, but on this day I had a plan.

I sat her on the bench, knelt on one knee, and proceeded to spend the three longest minutes of my life trying not to pass out.

Finally summoning sufficient courage, I asked her to marry me. She said yes.

Get well soon, sweetheart. I love you.

Don, I think about you guys a lot and hope you're doing well. Happy Anniversary, and please know that you're cared about. Cared for? Either way, it's bad grammar. Let's try again . . .

Please know I care about you.

How's that?
