    I feel very fortunate that my guy’s friends and family think I’m the best thing that ever happened to him. I like them all, too. In fact, his very best friend paid me the ultimate compliment last week. He said, I’m really glad you’re there. He’s happier than I’ve ever seem him.” That’s a big deal since they’ve been friends for over 40 years.
