I couldn’t put this in my vows because I didn’t want to upset people but here’s what I really want to say today. You opened my heart to me Sonny, you know where I was when I first came out - forget that I couldn’t admit I was gay. I was mired in so much twisted stuff with my family, with EJ, trying to protect myself and figure out what the hell was going on around me…in fact that pretty much describes everyday of my life before I met you. You cut through all the fog, it only looked like my life got crazy with Arianna and all that drama after we got together. The truth is everything was simple after I fell in love with you, I don’t know how I got so lucky to find a man who is so warm and generous and loving first time out of the gate. I promise to never forget what a gift you are, I’m honoured that in a few hours you will be my husband. All my love, Will
—  Will’s letter to Sonny [1st April 2014]
Do you remember the day we met? I don’t know if you paid any attention to me, but I sure noticed you. And then, watching you struggle with who you were and just having to stand there and let you figure it out on your own, that was so hard for me because I knew that I loved you. And I knew there was nothing I could do except be there for you, like I am right now. The first time that you told me that you loved me? That was the best day of my life Will, so far. And I’m saying so far because I know we’re going to have best days ahead of us, right? Right Will? I just love you so much

Sonny, I’m not sure I’ll find the words when I see you, and I want to make sure I get this right. I never thought I’d get another chance with the only guy that I have ever loved, so thank you for being patient, and generous, and for loving me as much as I love you. And most of all, thank you for giving me a second chance. Love, Will
