As the oldest member of the Forbes/Murphy family I would like to officially welcome you to our family. You have chosen a true gem, and we could not be more pleased.
Melinda's grandmother and I will get much pleasure watching the two of you (while not interfering) as you go through the joys and struggles of your lives together. We know there is a strong enough bond between the two of you that your love will grow as the years pass.
We hope that some day you will have the joy of writing a letter similar to this one to your own first grandchild when they have chosen to enter into a marriage of their own.Sincerely
