Ceremonial Speech Outline
It seems like a life time ago when I first met my best friend Sheri K, when in all reality it has only been 10 years. We have been through so much together over the course of that 10 years, raising kids, laughing and crying together, loses and gains in life, and so many celebrations. Through us our kids have even grown to be best friends and extended family to each other. Then two years ago the ultimate test of our friendship would come along, I moved to another state. Would our friendship be able to stand the test of distance? The night before we were to move we realized we needed another U-Haul truck to finish packing our house but we did not have a driver. Sheri volunteered to make the long journey with us. She took her vacation time and packed up her son too and on the road we went the following day. It has been two years since that long journey.
