Not sure if I'll still be awake later so...
Happy New Year Carla! This has been a very rough year for me and my family, for work, for the family business, emotionally and physically, etc.
But I never had a moment where I felt down or totally out of it. Having you around, as a friend, as someone I love (in all aspects of the idea of it), as a sounding board, heck, even as someone I just annoy has been fantastic.
Life was never hard when you were there. Days were never as rough when you were listening. Times were never horrible when I was with you (whether in real life or just talking). I was never sad when you were there to cheer me up.
Basically what I want to say is - 2016 has still been a fantastic year since I had you around. I know I haven't been the most accessible, or most attentive guy, nor have I been the easiest to deal with, but, I've had a blast knowing you were always there for me - no questions asked.
