101. You are such a genuinely good friend that people whose lives you touched years before still want to be a part of your life.

We MUST find a way to meet up again! You've never met my fiance and I've never met your son!

You are blowing every stereotype of pastors that I have. I relate to wanting the last three things to be impressive.
