steve.cussins 02/04/2011 12:57 PM I danced with my wife now 23 years ago on Valentine’s Day and we’ve been together ever since. We are miles apart as I serve my Country in its time and need as an Airman with the Kansas Air National Guard in Afghanistan. I still remember that dance as it were yesterday and would never change a thing even today. She is my wingman at home keeping everything going while I’m so far away. We’ve been apart before but not as long as we are now. I’m just serving my country nothing special but she has served her Country on the home front and alongside of me. She deserves a special day and what a way to show her how much I love her and her sacrifices over the years. My love to you Merinda Master Sargent Steven Cussins, bgab, Afghanistan. We listen to The Legend.
When I got married to my husband Oscar, it changed my whole entire life. He has proven to me that I was not only a past time. He stood by my side after all the difficulties weve had to live. Even after losing the most valuable thing to us, he stepped up and proved to be a man. I would like to win this to thank him for all his efforts and show him how much it means to me that he didnt give up on me. It takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate them, a day to love them, and a lifetime to forget them This quote is dedicated to my husband to let him know that he will always be in my heart throught bad and through good. THE LEGEND Gaby Diaz
A HUGE THANK YOU to all the entrants, sponsors and Special Delivery 4 U for making this such a SPECIAL promotion
