Happy Birthday, Honey!

Happy birthday, Jamie! You have brought much joy to us since that cold winter day when they laid all 8# 13 ounces of you in our arms back in 1983.

As the firstborn to a couple of rookies, you were the experimental model and you love us still in spite of our mess-ups and fumbles. And we loved you before you ever showed us your face, and so enjoyed all the fun you brought to our home. Always a bounce in your step (always a step ahead of mom!) and a smile, a happy, smart, and curious blonde girl!

I wish we could be with you in Alabama today, to hug you, to feed you at your choice of restaurant, and to make you a big cake with ice cream to share. But know today, as always, that we all love you and miss you and wish all the best for this brand new year!

Love, Mom and Dad, your brothers and your doggie BUDDY!
