May you have food and raiment, a soft pillow for your head, May you be forty years in heaven before the devil knows you’re dead. 

Happy marriages begin when we marry the one we love, and they blossom when we love the one we have married. 

May your right hand always be stretched out in friendship and never in want. 

To the lamp of love - may it burn brightest in the darkest hours and never flicker in the winds of trial.

Here’s to a sweetheart, a bottle, and a friend. The first beautiful, the second full, the last ever faithful. 

May you have warm words on a cold evening, A full moon on a dark night, and the road downhill all the way to your door. 

May there be a generation of children on the children of your children. 

May I see you grey and combing your grandchildren’s hair.
