I don’t know if you know this but in addition to being a college grad, a part time school teacher and researcher, somewhat of a web designer, and, from what I understand, a fantastic financial advisor at Primerica, Jameson Brewer is also a Native-American dancing champion. I’m totally serious. And while he doesn’t have a degree in this art, if I remember correctly he holds championships in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, and perhaps a few other southern States, I don’t know. I have never seen him dance, but I know that some of the things involved in these dances are: colorful feathers, hula-hoops, and, on occasion, flaming torches. In fact, this evening at the reception, Jameson will be performing a special dance for all of us wedding guests.
Actually, no, I made that up.
But I want to say this: Jameson, you’re a special guy. You are a very talented individual. You’re super organized with an entrepreneurial spirit. You’re a role model for young people, an inspiration to your friends. You are someone on whom others gladly depend. And you’re a dancing fool. And…Mallory is a lucky girl.
Mallory, you, too, are the real deal. You love well and you live well. You’re also super organized. You have a sensitive and caring heart, a passion for God and for the things of God. People love your presence; it is, for them, a good thing to be around you. And, truly, Jameson is a lucky man.
I say these things to you both not to puff you up or to make you feel good. But I know that the support and encouragement of family and friends is extremely valuable to you. Well, you’ve got it. I want to say publicly what I am convinced all of us already are thinking: We love you. We support you. We’re proud of you both. And we’re so honored to be your family and friends.
