Happy Birthday amazon man. It was fun being with you as we celebrated your life.
Just like your sweet daughter, we look up to you as an example of someone who has faith and hope. Life is going well for you right now. but to your credit I see a man who was positive in times of stress as well as in times of calm.
Your family looks to you to bring them joy and strength and you will not disappoint. I can't quite connect the boy I hugged and tickled with the man you are today, but......
....all I hoped for you is being realized.
You come from good Burgess stock and it is fitting that all the Marks, James's and Walters we stumble over are names of good men who are faithful and strong.
Be of good cheer, son!
