I have told the story above many times to my family and friends, it is one of my favorites. It makes me very happy to share it with you today. I am extremely fortunate to be with the woman I am with. Let’s put aside how amazingly talented, successful and creative she is. Let’s forget that she held my hand through some of the toughest times and has continued to do so. While we are at it let’s just gloss over the fact that she’s chosen a life with another artist so there goes stability (financially and sometimes emotionally) right out the window. The woman is a saint because she met me three times, was my closest friend for a year and STILL went out with me.  See I told you I was fortunate.
(Oh yeah and it was Melissa who insisted that I see the doctor and we caught the cancer just in time! I do NOT buy that woman flowers often enough!)
