A heartfelt message to my friend turned brother

On your special day today, my friend, I wanted to do something a little different. I thought that this year I'd send you a heartfelt message to let you know just how meaningful you are to me.

Over the years you have become so much more to me than simply just a friend. The truth is, I see you now as more of a brother than a buddy. 

Happy birthday, and always know that I’m truly very grateful to have someone like you in my life.
