Lash, I cried when I read your wonderful post about Dys. He truly is that wonderful and I can't come up with enough words to express that.
Dys, you were there for me in one of the most difficult times of my life and I don't know if I could ever thank you enough for picking up this repeatedly broken down girl and making me feel normal.
I was going through hell, but for some reason, you had all this faith in me and I can't even begin to explain how much it meant to me that you believed in me.
You cared enough to involve yourself in my very long dreaded story and was always there when I didn't feel I could cope any longer.
<wiping tears from my face>
You somehow managed to turn my tears into smiles and I need you to know that you are the one who gave me the courage to pick myself up, wipe away my endless tears and keep on trucking.
We talked often (I needed that like you'll never truly know) and I don't know if I could have found the courage to pick myself up if you hadn't have taken the time to be such a special friend.
I am forever grateful to you Dys, for giving me the gift of light in my life. You showed me that there was a light at the end of the tunnel and I'll never forget that.
There is no doubt in my mind that I wouldn't be the strong person I am today if it wasn't for your endless words of encouragement and kindness.
I love you Bob and I should have said all this many years ago, but I didn't want to embarrass you.
I hope I didn't embarrass you, but if I did, blame Lash because she started it
