Sheila and I thank all of you for your greetings for my birthday and our 8th wedding anniversary. Your greetings have literally overwhelmed and humbled me. I have just rested my fingers, having individually replied to over 600 people over the past four hours on my Facebook page responses and private messages, and there are at least 200 greetings on my Irish facebook site contacts and friends I still need to reply to.
It is apparent that I cannot keep up with all the love you are showing myself and Sheila today, so if I cannot respond individually to you, please forgive me. If in the event that any of you reply to this message, I will read it, but will not reply, otherwise my wedding anniversary and birthday will be over before Sheila and I have an hour together.Thank you all once again for making this day a special day for me and Sheila.
And to give my sweetheart at the end of our special day one more thought, it is this: In 2010, Sheila 'when you proposed to me' and I said 'Yes, please', if we were to retrace our footsteps and you asked me to marry you again, do you know what, Sweetheart? I'd do it all over again!
Love and peace Bill and Sheila xxx
