You are a very close cousin of mine

Relationships between most cousins
either tend to be a very close one or
quite distant.

I can say with certainty that to me,
you are and always have been part
of the former.

You are someone who I know I can
always rely on for fantastic support
and advice. You have always been
there for me and I have only great
memories of us growing up together.

Thank you for being an integral part
of my life, dear cousin.

Wishing you a very happy birthday
today and many more joyous
birthdays to come!
