"To my beautiful sister, on your wedding night, I would like to quote two songwriters who, at the tender ages of seven and nine, once composed the masterpiece of a lifetime that I think is quite fitting for such an occasion:
Dun, dun, dun, dun, dun, dun, dun, dun.Dun, dun, dun, dun, dun, dun, dun, dun.I know that you are a star!In the sky, way up very far!Baby, Baby Star, we want to see you!Not just in the sky so midnight blue!
"Perhaps at the time we dedicated these words, oddly enough, to Jocko the monkey. But as I thought about what might make you smile tonight, I also realized how true these words are of your magnetism. You are a star. You are captivating. You are above and beyond and shining vividly. And we all want to be near you, to hope some of your stardust falls on us."
A quick snippet of my little wedding toast so that my sister can always remember how the world sees her, and how she is loved and teaches us to love and hope and dream.
