From that first encounter at King’s Cross, to the last, you have been our King. You were the one that we could always count on to be there for us and for Harry, through everything. You are the bravest man that I have ever known, no matter what anyone else says. There was never a doubt in my mind that you would come back to your friends, for we all know that you are a Gryffindor — brave and loyal to the day you die. You are more than just Harry Potter’s stupid best friend, you are the King.
Happy 33rd Birthday, Ronald Bilius Weasley!
