Dear Jack, For months now you have been telling us “My birthday’s next!…” When is it? “the 25fff…” How old will you be? “Freee!..” When you woke this morning and I told you it was finally your birthday, you didn’t believe me. Almost as if the anticipation was more fun than the actual birthday. Later I realized it was the cake and candles you were anticipating the most. So I made sure your cake was ready for the celebration tonight. We went out for dinner to a local diner that serves the food on a model train. You were as pleased as you could be about that, and so were each of your siblings. It was such fun. We went home and had your cake. It was your proudest hour of the day.

You bring us MUCH laughter and joy. You have been happy since the day you were born and as stubborn as the day is long. But we’ll definitely keep you around because our family would not be complete without you. Happy birthday! We love you and pray God will draw you near to him now and all the days of your life. Amen!
