Hi My Birdy, I wish you could have been here for your Birthday, Your Dad and I went up to your bench on the trail and sent off your balloons and Grandma Oma and Papa sent you off theirs at the house. We all went to the Legion and toasted to you for the amazing young man you are, when we got home I made your favorite, Brownies with vanilla ice cream, hot fudge and whip-cream. We all Love and Miss you more than you know, you will Never be Forgotten!❤️
