Thanks to my love of my life for over 21 years and on July 13th, 2011, we will have married 19 years ago. She made my life the day we meet 5/5/1990 and when she became Mrs. Lou Ann Talavera on July 13th 1992 she made my life even better and I look forward to waking up being thankful one more day and being a little more in love with her today then I was yesterday. Tonight when I go to sleep I thank her for being my dessert in life!
