Today is your birthday. You would be 59 earthly years, but instead you have no number to your eternal life. I know that you know how many of us still think about you, love you, miss you, celebrate you, and still mourn your passing. You were just way too young in our eyes to leave all who loved you so much. We accept it. We dont like it but have had to accept it. We also never miss an opportunity to pay respect to your life and service to others.
So as we experience another birthday of yours, I hope and pray that your eternal life is as happy and loving as our faith tells us it is.
Happy Birthday my dear friend..............
