I?ll stand firm and face the challenge and work hard to see that you never have any regrets. You told me once that you wanted to share a corner of my dream. Without you, Amelia, I have no dream. With you, I have everything I could ever dream of wanting.?Tears burned her eyes as he glanced back at the preacher. ?I`m done.?-Houston to Amelia as his wedding vow.
