PRAISE AND GRATITUDE TO THE GUESTS

Reference to the Guests, Reason for Invitation

Amy and Robert wish to express their gratitude for the presence and witness of those closest to them, their friends and family gathered this evening.  Many of you have traveled far to be here, and all of you have generously given your time to be a part of the most important moment in Amy and Robertís lives.  They are honored to have each and every one of you here this evening.

Now, a reading from the Best Man they know, a true friend and fellow traveler, Eric Lakits:

[Eric Lakits reads:] As Ayn Rand wrote,

"Love, friendship, respect, admiration are the emotional response of one man to the virtues of another, the spiritual payment given in exchange for the personal, selfish pleasure which one man derives from the virtues of another man's character."

Unquote.

We honor one another by the spiritual trade of this event, and we are all complimented as a result.

[Miriam continues:] While it would be impossible to acknowledge the role each of those present has played in Amy and Robert's lives, justice demands special recognition to Gloria Walker and Sonja Correa. As we honor the bride and groom, so we implicitly honor the two who have done the most for them, their mothers. Robert and Amy thank you for having done so much.
