I have never met two of real, giving, caring, unselfish people that compliment each other as well as they do, and they do so in such a way that it makes me believe that without a doubt love like theirs can outlast anything life throws their way. I know that as hard as it can be for most to come across that kind of true, unbreakable love in life, it seems it would be even harder to let it go.
TO: Gretchen and Slade, if I could take just a minute to give you guys some roundtable advice like you have given me, "many times before" (LOL). . .Just keep in mind not every relationship is perfect with rainbows and butterflies.
There will always be good with the bad, the ups with the downs, and smiles with the frowns. It's really how you both approach the situation and find the most effective way to work through this together as a team. You both truly love each other and as your good friend I would never want to see anything ever come in between you two, even if I have to get in my car, drive down to your house, get CRAZY on you, lock you in the house and make you both talk it all out before you ever decide to ever quit on each other! LOL.
I am so glad to hear that you both decided to reach out and get some professional advice on any issues you were going through. If there is a WILL there is a WAY. I have faith in you guys and love you both very much! I know that you will be able to move forward past all of this and hopefully have a happy healthy life together. . .forever! I'm always here for you if you ever need anything. I'm always just a phone call and car ride away.
