39: Grammy & Pop, Happy 90th Birthday! I love you very much. You are both amazing grandparents, and I am so blessed to have you. You are both generous, kindhearted, and all around just wonderful people. Thank you so much for having us over on Saturday nights, which I always look forward to, your surprise cakes when we come home from vacation, or your most recent tapioca visit when I had my teeth out. I can't express how important you both are to me, and again, how much I love you. I hope you enjoy your day and know how special you are to me and everyone in this family. Happy Birthday again! Love, Susanna | "Celebrating Your 90th" Memories reside in our hearts and minds. They run through our blood and touch our lives. You are precious to us all, and Here are some reasons why. The love and comfort you give everyday. The small, mundane gestures you show and say. But here are some memories you placed deep in my heart. The soft, gentle tickles Gram gave my little girl arms. The sweet, perfect texture of chocolate icing on your yellow cake. Grandpop tapping his toes to Lawrence Welk every week. And the loved rosary beads next to the chair for your prayers. The smooth porcelain sink filled with dishes to wash, and The special conversations that took place while we dried. Gram reading "The Poky Little Puppy" to me after dinner. The evening walks up the hill with Grandpop and his dogs. Running between the trees to catch fireflies in the summertime. Besides all these moments, sounds, smells, and sights, The most special part of being with you is How you make me (and now my boys too) feel So loved. Thank you for being you. I love you so much! Happy birthdays! Love, Diane | Dear Gram and Pop, Happy 90 th Birthday! You two are the best. Thank you for all of your love and support over the years. I read this prayer and thought that it embodies what both of you have taught everyone you have met in your life's journey: I want to teach my children how to live this life on earth, to face it's struggles and it's strife and improve their worth. Not just the lesson in a book or how the rivers flow, but how to choose the proper path wherever they may go. To understand eternal truth and know right from wrong, and gather all the beauty of a flower and a song. For if I help the world to grow in wisdom and in grace then I shall feel that I have won and I have filled my place. And so I ask Your guidance, God that I may do my part for character and confidence and happiness of heart. We love you so very much. God bless you! Love, Tom, Karen, and Joe
40: Happy 90th Birthday! We love you.
