My little brother, Derek, has finally taken the plunge and tied the knot. On October 2, 2009, he and his sweetheart, Jaclyn, were sealed in the Salt Lake Temple. I can not tell you how excited I am for both of them.
Derek is only 13 months younger than I am and we have been good friends our entire lives. However, over the past 5 years or so, we have gotten to be even closer. I have really enjoyed talking to him during his engagement and learning the softer side of my body builder brother. Often times, he will call me on his way home from a date with Jaclyn just to talk. I can’t even begin to tell you how much that has meant to me.
I am so glad that Derek has found such a wonderful companion. He has chosen someone that is intelligent and witty just like he is. They are amazingly good friends and perfect for each other. I wish you the best Derek and Jaclyn. I love you both very much and I could not be happier for you both. Jaclyn, Welcome to the family. Derek, you couldn’t have made a better choice.
Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Griner!
