Jude is the light that shines in my life. She is the love that beats in my heart. Jude is my most treasured blessing : the greatest gift I could have hoped for in my life. Jude is likely the only reason I’m still around today. She saved me from myself, she gives me her unconditional love, and she has given me twenty years of unmatched happiness. She always prays to God to make me strong, but I think that the strength comes through her. So, back in I’m an June girl shirt (I was born with my heart on my sleeve) there were a bunch of great “Dear Nashville Predators” letters and videos coming out after the disheartening end to what can only be described as a fantastic playoff run. They all said things like “keep up the hard work, you were great” and “we’re so proud of you” or “you’ll get ‘em next year”. Knowing that the Preds and Nashville Hockey mean so much to me and my family, many of my friends encouraged me to write one as well.
