I am just glowing with happiness here, Richard!
You are a wonderful person, but how fabulously bright you shine when you're *smitten* by someone as lovely as she !!
Marilyn, just in case you are wondering, I know Richard - and he has got to be one of the most sincere and *mature* men I have ever known!! He is genuine with a capital *G*.......I believe your heart would be safe with him - he hurts no one, and is very forgiving when hurt. He has been a friend to me and stood by me, when no other man would in his position. That's how I know he is sincere about his friendships and relationships...He is a dear friend of mine, and I know how crazy he is about YOU !!! I wish you two the bestest of best luck!
BTW Richard - this acrostic was wonderful, and I know very appreciated.....
