Happy Birthday Rick!

When I was 13 years old,
my Mom and Dad brought a new
baby brother home.
Since that day,
he's been "my" guy.
I watched Rick grow up,
and take on the responsibilities of a man.
I have seen him face many of life's most
difficult challenges with grace and strength.
Rick is a career Navy man and as a result,
has had to be separated from his family
for long stretches.
Even now, he and his sweet wife, Terry
are preparing for a three year tour of duty
in Germany.
(By the way, Terry has an incredible shop on
Some of my best memories are of times spent with Rick.
We share a love of movies, books, and cooking,

So, here's to you, Rick, the best man I know.
The other thing I know is that having you in
my life is one of the things that makes
my life sweeter.
Love ya!
Happy Birthday!

Is the baby "bother" a Freudian slip? Cute!
