Happy Birthday, Dave


Happy birthday to you, my sweet husband.

Thanks for choosing me to share your life.

Thanks to the young girl who gave birth to you and to the family who stepped in to raise you and make sure you were in the right place at the right time so we could meet and create this life.  It may have been a day of mixed emotions for some, the day you were born; there might have been pain, feelings of loss, who knows? But overall, I know heaven was rejoicing just like I am today!

So today, we celebrate you, all of us: me (the wife who loves you so), our 5 grown children, the extra 3 wonderfuls that have come by marriage, these three (almost 4) incredible grandkids.  We have no reservation in raucously celebrating your life!

I love you, babe.  Happy Birthday!  Jeanie
