Dear Nancy,

You are the best!
I don't know what I ever did to deserve marrying into such a flipping awesome sister-in-law, but I feel like I have hit the jackpot! I would make a huge list of all of your fabulous qualities, but it's late, I have a headache, and need to go to bed (but stay tuned for that - it's going to be a doozey!) So, for now, my gift to you is the gift of the memory of our beautiful children frolicking on the beach.
Why do I love Nancy? Well, for JUST ONE THING, she has raised the most kind, beautiful, wonderful little boy in the world. A little boy who protects his cousin, LIVES to choose the right, thinks of others before EVER thinking of himself, and loves his family and others with a capacity that most of us cannot comprehend! It takes one heck of a mom to raise a boy with such character, and I thank God every day that you are in my life. It has been nothing short of devastating to go year after year - unable to provide Kortland with a brother of his own. But our Heavenly Father loves us, and wouldn't you know it? He provided for us - even when we didn't realize He was doing it. He may not have given Kort a brother, but he gave him the kind of cousin that most kids only dream about having. More to come, but for now - I sure love you!

Oh, we all know you ONLY married my brother so you could be MY legally and lawfully wedded SIS-IN-LAW.
