Dear Mr. Veen: 39 years ago tomorrow a long, scrawny baby boy with big blue eyes was born. Lucky me! Dear Thomas P. Calhoon: I have no idea where this name came from only that it is the perfect nick name for you from time to time. Dear Tommy Boy: do you remember this song by Living Colour from our wedding video? I think the lyrics still ring true today. So glad I've got the solace of you! Dear Thomas William van der Veen II: I remember thinking maybe you were some sort of Dutch royalty the first time you told me your entire first name, little did I know you are not only royalty but a true Viking as well! Dear Tom: you are my best friend and the love of my life, I can't even begin to imagine navigating this world without you by my side. Looking forward to it being all about you this weekend!!
