    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne



    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    They all sound quite nice! We've not dined much at the Universal end of the world. I wonder if there food and service is as good (or better?!) than WDW?

    We did have a wonderful meal ages ago at Emeril's at City Walk...
