Happy Happy!


Happy 68th birthday Dad.
My dad who loves us all to pieces.
My dad who helps us whenever he can.
My dad who laughs, loves to read and talk about the world, politics, the economy and is always willing to listen to my "left wing-ness"
My dad who has always made me feel smart and capable.
My dad who never has a bad thing to say about anyone.
My dad who is as strong as he is gentle.
Thanks for your love, your light, and your example of a life worth living.
We love you so much!

Happy Birthday Gary! I have such wonderful memories of your house and the farm during our high school years. It was great a place to be and you and Jan were so welcoming!
