A note from Natasha: Thank you for being my knight in shining armor, my best friend and lover and a wonderful loving and caring husband, son and father to our two sons. I didn’t think it was possible to love someone more, after you’d gotten together and had been married to them, than I do with you each and every day. I love you more and more as the years go by and the longer we’re together, you’ll always be by Puddin’ and i’ll always be your Harley Quinn.
