To: Jacqueline Christensen
In Albert Lea, Minnesota, in my youth, I found my First Love, the Fair Jacqueline Christensen. Alas, our engagement of those early years didn't work out and our lives took us off in different directions. Fate and faith crossed our paths and brought us together 33 years later. We are now to be married on what might have been our 34th anniversary, October 20, 2007, in Edina. This Irishman is now surrounded by a Scandinavian multitude in my new family. I am assured a steady supply of rubarb pie and other delights for the rest of my days as I have re-found my very own Prairie Home Companion. If you would, if you could, please send my greeting on your Charlotte show (our wedding day) to my bride Jacqueline.
—Robert Craig
