From this day for­ward I promise you these things.
I will laugh with you in times of joy and com­fort you in times of sor­row.
I will share in your dreams, and sup­port you as you strive to achieve your goals.
I will lis­ten to you with com­pas­sion and un­der­stand­ing,
and speak to you with en­cour­age­ment.
I will help you when you need it, and step aside when you don’t.
I will re­main faith­ful to you for bet­ter or worse, in times of sick­ness and health.
You are my best friend and I will love and re­spect you al­ways.
