Our 6th Wedding Anniversary

And what a 6 years it's been! Shawn and I were married on September 8, 2001, days before the Sept. 11 attacks. What a surreal honeymoon that was. And it just got weirder and weirder after that.

Little did we know, that our uneventful, by-the-book dating life--was about to get interesting with a roller coaster of odd medical issues, heartbreaking losses and unbelievable joy. Who knew marriage was going to be this exciting?

For the people that have the pleasure of knowing Shawn personally, you know that he is a rock, as sturdy as they come. He's one of the most kindest, open-minded, dependable, sentimental and considerate people you will ever meet in your life.

He has a wickedly-wry sense of humor, but at the same time, derives great pleasure from telling really lame, canned jokes. Shawn is the father I always knew he would be...totally wrapped...but it's incredible how much he loves his baby girl. He has unwavering love and deep loyalty to his family and friends.

I am lucky to have such a great team player to share my life with. I love you Shawn..happy anniversary!

Happy Anniversary
Melissa and Shawn!

Wow! Six years already?!

The first time we met Shawn we thought he was a "Secret Agent" man with his suit and aviator sunglasses.

Over these past 6 years we have come to know Shawn as the best guy in the world for our daughter and best dad in the world for granddaughter. We are so proud of Shawn and love him dearly!

Your precious family has brought Dad and I so much love and joy!

May God bless your marriage
and give you continued
joy and peace.

Love, Mom and Dad
