In the immediate future we want that our two boys grow up in a harmonious family. We also love to make City trips and to visit other countries to see different cultures. But first we want to start to rebuild our house and garden and to buy a boat, because our house is located at the water. With a new boat we can sail on our lake and also the possibility to make some trips.
Dedicate each other a love sentence …
Our love sentence to each other:
Erwin, after 21 years you’re still my tower of strength. There is no day the same with you. I know what I have with you and I can trust my heart to you. Your characteristics makes you the man that I still love with all my heart.
Christel, you’re my sunshine in my life, the glint in your eyes, the shine of your hair, your sense of humor and your spontaneity makes you my loving wife. And I will end with a beautiful Italian sentence. “Vorrei donare il tuo sorriso alla luna perché/ Di notte chi la guarda possa pensare a te /Per ricordarti che il mio amore è importante”.
