The highlight of the party was when it was time for Nike’s husband to give a special remark about his wife. He thrown everyone into an emotional mood.With a baritone voice,he held the audience spellbound took guests back memory lane when they met and how their marriage has lasted for several years. He says” Nike!!!when i first met Nike , I dedicated a song to her and used to play it for her everytime. She is worth more than a million. Beautiful inside and outside. many years ago, 3 ladies went into an expensive store to buy a dress in their community for a competition.they all went into the shop,picked the dress and fitted it and dropped it.
The last lady went in, fitted it and picked it. She was gorgeously dressed and won the competition.The reason I used this analogy is this, out of the lot I chose to be with Nike because she is not only a friend,she is my bestfriend. The woman that turned my sorrow into happiness. The woman that brought out the love in me.That is why I will tell you that i have been searching until I got you.She is so close to me like my mother and my siblings. With Nike I am confident to leave my mum with her while I travelled round because I know nothing will happen to her.I dedicate this Joe music(I will never find another lover sweeter than you.) to you because you are special. If I have more than this,I will do more. I love you and this moment is what I have been waiting for to say how much I love you and I will forever love you.The most beautiful woman that lived on the earth.Nike you have not seen anything yet, please join me in congratulating my wife, happy 50th birthday.”. She and her husband sealed it up with a kiss and danced in a loving way to choice music from the DJ.
