  1. I’d like to thank my partner Scott for his love, support, and thoughtfulness.

    He’s been especially considerate since finding out I have irreparable heart damage. He takes the day off for out of state travel to take me to my VA cardiologist several times a year.

    He’s been my rock through the death of my mother and two dogs, and survived my bout with peri- and menopause.

    He also often picks up a special treat for me when he’s out shopping.

    He does anything I need without question. Thank you so much for being in my life Scott! I love you too :)

    As always, I would like to thank my sister and brother in law. We have a child who for 7 years has been battling kidney disease. This means a lot of trips to the ER. My sister and brother always welcome our two other children – day or night. We have even been in the hospital for three weeks at a time. They love our girls and make them feel wanted and special. Having them there for us and not having to worry when we go to the hospital is something that is beyond value. They are also the first ones to come to the rescue whenever any one is in need. A flat tire, even a stranger stuck in the snow. My brother in law never turns a blind eye to anyone. Their family is a true treasure.

  29. Marcella Wozniak

    I would like to thank my parents (married 58 years) for giving me all they could, but more importantly, all I needed to become a successful, independent, contributing member of society. My dad is a Vet; my mom worked part time while the four of us were little to help out with the household income. We never wanted for anything (that we knew, anyway) and always felt loved, respected and cherished. None of us (me or my three siblings) would be where we are today without their unconditional love and support.

    I would like to thank my daughters for growing up to be kind and thoughtful young women who think of others before themselves; while still striving to be high achievers.

    I would like to thank my husband, Jeremy. We are both in school, and he works full time as a RN to support us. Without him, I don’t know where I would be. He helps his co-workers and family, too. He is kind and smart, funny and hard working. His patients love him, and nurses are never given the credit they are due. They work harder than doctors usually for a fraction of the pay. They are the ones in the rooms with patients all night making sure they are okay. He is definitely my better half.

We’ve been best friends for so long and she has never let me down. We live in different states, but she always takes the time to call or send me a letter just to make my day a little better.

  73. Anne Desaro

    I want to thank my amazing mom for all that she has done for me, and continues to do every day.

    After my dad passed away very suddenly ten years ago my mom was crippled with an ungodly amount of medical debt resulting from the incident. Nearing her golden years when she should have been settling in to retirement, she had to go back to work to pay off all the debt, knowing that she’d have to work the rest of her life to pay it all off (all while dealing with the grief of losing her partner).

    Two years ago, my husband and I finally became pregnant after years of trying when things suddenly took a terrible turn. It was a complicated pregnancy the entire way and we were told our little one (if she made it) could be mentally challenged, have heart defects, lung defects, possibly blind and/or deaf. We were at the mercy of fate, and I could only be comforted by the arms of the woman who had seen me through all of life’s challenges: my amazing mom.

    Being a 2-income family by necessity, the idea of finding childcare for a special needs child became overwhelming, to say the least. It was an added stress that was weighing me down emotionally and financially… Then, my loving, thoughtful, never selfish mom came to me and declared that she had put in her notice at work and was going to stay home to be our “Granny Nanny!”

    The day our daughter was born gave me new insight into the love my mom has felt for me all these years: undying, selfless and eternal. AND, knowing that our little one was going to be cared for by the most amazing person on earth gave us so much comfort that we were able to go back to work with peace of mind.

    Here’s the happiest part of all: our daughter came out 100% healthy, and now she and Granny get to play and learn together all day long! They are the best of friends and I couldn’t be more thankful for the most amazing mom the world has to offer: mine!

  74. Jessie May Pulia

    I would like to thank my parents for taking care of me,Thank you for always supporting me in all of my decisions and thank you for loving Ava(my daughter) and always giving your best to make her happy.
