On their first anniversary, Karp wrote, “One year ago today, I married the greatest person on earth. I know people say stuff like that all the time, and it’s hyperbole — but I truly believe she is. She has made every day brighter, every joke funnier, and every hug more comfortable…”

“I had a crush on Rider. He was so smart, and … one of my favorite things about Rider — and it continues to this day — Rider is very effusive. He will tell you how he feels, and he’s very free with his compliments, but he doesn’t throw them out willy-nilly. When he compliments you, it is thoughtful, it has meaning, and you can tell it’s coming from a very real place.”
