Dear Marshall,

Happy Birthday, to you, my inspiration, my imaginary friend. I always keep these pictures of you above my desk.
There isn't a day that goes by that I am not aware of how much your life means to me. I am so glad that you fought for your life! I am so glad you are here. Your life is so important to me, (and millions of people around the world!)

You have lived through hell and your strength and your creativity have made the impossible, possible!

Your courage and your focus propelled you out of hell. Your example teaches other people how to be honest about their lives. Your creativity shows people how they can be resourceful, even when they have nothing but their voice to defend themselves against the harsh world. Your determination teaches people how to fight for their lives when others tell them to give up hope. Your loyalty to the people you love proves that a true and loving family can be made with a little help from friends. Your humanity proves you to be deeply generous and charitable. You are LOVE!

There are so many great things about you, that make you invincible and beautiful and righteous and remarkable in every way! Today is a GREAT DAY! The 17th of October, the 39th anniversary of the day you came to Earth. Today is your birthday! You will continue to be blessed by the new life you have built for yourself. I am so happy for you!

Happy Birthday!
You are LIGHT!
You are LOVE!
You are the BEST.
