This is American Top 40 I’m Casey Kasem. Now we are up to our long distance dedication and it is from a tired telephone man. It’s from a lonely guy who is ready to see his sweetie in person. The letter begins, “Dear Casey, while it is wonderful to speak with my wife each day, I would really love to see her and hold her tight in my arms. The anticipation is killing me and it makes me think about all the times I have picked her up at the airport. The buildup you have looking at everyone coming out. Is that her, no. Is that her, no. Then that moment when you lock eyes and you know it is her. When that happens I have this feeling of completeness and happiness. Sometimes it can be an over whelming feeling.

This is American Top 40 I’m Casey Kasem. Now we are up to our long distance dedication and it is from Yellowstone. It’s from a computer guy working in a wilderness with a girl far away on his heart. The letter begins, “Dear Casey, during our many wonderful years of marriage we have been separated for short time periods as we moved. Those other times we knew about how long we would be apart. With this move things are more uncertain. It makes me think of the uncertainty of us getting together when we were dating due to rain. You may find this hard to believe but my wife (girlfriend at the time) had a car that would not start regularly when it rained so she had to be very selective about driving it when it was raining. Many times you think about the big things in life and if you had a do over how you would change things. When it comes to my wife I find myself thinking more about the little things and how I would have changed them. I think about the time we didn’t spend together because of the inconvenience of her anti-rain car when I could have fixed that by just driving more. I think about things like that especially since our time together is very precious to me as we are separated by so many miles. No matter what distance separates us she is always on my mind.

This is American Top 40 I’m Casey Kasem. Now we are up to our long distance dedication and it is from Gardiner, Montana. It’s from a Georgia boy living in Montana that has a story to tell. The letter begins, “Dear Casey, over 17 years ago a tall and thin man with a little too much of an attitude had a conversation with a tall and lovely lady at a river side restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia. From that moment he was smitten and over time he would prove his love to her. One day as they were leaving work, as they worked in the same building, he asked her if she would like to do something after work. The beautiful lady said that she wasn’t in the best of moods and would not be good company. The man who was losing some of his attitude said that he wanted to be with her in the good and bad. They agreed to take a walk which he will always remember as every civilized man should always carry a handkerchief. He knew that she was the love of his life. Later that year at Christmas they were engaged right after a bow fluffing incident that they both look back on and laugh about. On April 6, 2002 they were married. After many life challenges that included multiple un-welcomed moves. They are still together as they were both hand picked by God to be together.
