Dear Mr. & Mrs. Huddleston,
I hope this letter finds you in good health and spirits. I'm writing to say thank you for putting up with me as a raucous youth and for the shining examples you were as youth group leaders. God knows that wrangling young sinners is an exercise in longsuffering as well as mentorship. But most of all, it’s a labor of love.
You two are one of the most patient, kind, and lovable couples I've ever been blessed to know. To eventually have my marriage end up half as sweet and gracious as my perception of yours would be a beautiful thing. We’re working on it.
