Dear Stanley and Patti,
I was just another guy – in from the East Coast – trying to sell you shoes. You invited me into your home and soon into your hearts. Your support and guidance encouraged me to pursue my lifelong dream of starting my own brand and moving to California.
Soon after relocating, I brought my son over to your house to witness your amazing friendship and caring spirit. Stanley showed him the autographed baseball collection while Patti baked cookies in the kitchen. It was an unforgettable day spent with two unforgettable people and just one example of your incredibly giving character.
You are an inspiration to so many in the industry, but it is with great pride that I can consider you dear friends.
The Silvers are indeed gold. Happy Golden Wedding Anniversary.
