Happy Birthday, Papa!

I only wish I knew what the birthday celebrations were like in Heaven.

Today, Papa, is enjoying everything about a Heavenly birthday.

Reading with Erik on Christmas Eve

Best Buds - celebrating together today and everyday!

Papa & Kaitlyn - his birthday, 2008

Papa & Sienna - his birthday, 2008
Papa at Erik's last birthday party - September, 2009

I can’t say I wish you were here to celebrate instead because I know your earthly life fails in comparison to the life you are living now.  But it would be nice if the girls got the chance to know their "Papa".  I hate that you had to go, but I'm so grateful you were there to welcome Erik with open arms.  I know that that 2 of y'all are having fun and I hope you're staying out of trouble!!!

Happy 84th Birthday Papa!!! We sure do miss you and your contagious laugh!!! Do me a favor, if you can get Erik to slow down long enough, give him a kiss for me!

Birthday's and Anniversaries are hard, hope you find some peace today and feel the love of family (and even blogging friends) all around you.
