Melina Reed. Love. I am not alone in my gratitude. So many of us know true love because of you. The emotion that swells in my chest when I think of our friendship is overwhelming. No matter the time between our visits, your hold on my heart remains strong. I fell for you — hard. You opened my mind to what it meant to fall in love, and though absent of romantic intimacy, it was the closest I’d ever felt to another human being. It made me “Love More,” and I am a better friend to others and a better wife to my husband because of it.
You once presented me with a gift, a symbol of love, a physical representation of feelings and thoughts addressed to me from those most important to me. It is one of the most beautiful gifts I’ve ever received. You continue to create these symbols of love for all those around you. I am so lucky to know you and to know your heart.
