Dearest Joanne,

13 years ago today I looked at the clock and realized that in five
minutes I was going to walk down the aisle at Abington Presbyterian
Church to marry you.

Today, I am the furthest I have ever been away from you, for the
longest period of time, yet I have never felt closer and more in love!

You are the best mother, leader of our global adventure, truest and
best friend I have ever had.

Thank you for taking care of me and our our three princes.

When I looked at that clock and saw 5 minutes I was nervous; since, I
find myself wondering why! I am the luckiest man in the world.

Happy Anniversary, my love!

Happy Birthday Devon Charles Koch

Dearest Devon,

Although it is still the evening of the 24th here where I am - on a
bus from Torrington, Connecticut to Brockton, Massachusetts - I hope
you are waking up to a wonderful day in Guangzhou. I think of you
every second of everyday, but I especially want you to know that I am
thinking about you today - right now.

I remember the day you were born - I took a few games off from the
Gators that summer and mommy and I waited in Loudon Hospital for your
arrival. When you were ready, the first place we took you was to the
ball field. I love that you still love competing on the baseball
field, football field, badminton or basketball court!

I am so proud of the boy you are! You are so kind, thoughtful and
eager to please! Those are fabulous traits that will help you in
every situation in life.

I feel so far away from you today, but I want you to know that I love
you more than ever, and I keep you right here in my heart.

Hug your mama, granny, Parker and Bennett for me!

Happy 10 years, sonny!
