A hearty three chrees for the prince and his bride to be. Make your mother proud of what you do for others. She was a tireless worker for peoples everywhere across the globe. I ask you to please support equal rights for all to marry. A loving relationship should not be judged on a persons sex or sexuality but on their commitment to each other. This is what really matters. After all, are we so different from everyone else. Good luck to you both, and have a blessed union for many years to come.
