Today is Gerry’s birthday.
There is little that distance in miles or time can do to diminish my deep and abiding love and respect for this man. He is heartbreakingly kind and generous to a fault. He is thoughtful and affectionate and gentle. He is a brilliant and critical thinker. He loves deeply and honestly.
I have been honored to be the recipient of this man’s love and friendship. It is my earnest wish, on his birthday, that I can continue to celebrate his light in my life for many years to come.
Happy birthday, Gerry. I love you.
