The favorite person would be my husband because he has been there throughout it all with me. Throughout the medical problems, raising the children, and going to college. He is my best friend and my favorite person in the world. I would not be where I am today without his unconditional love and support through it all. Your family is what makes you who you are and no one can take that away from you.
