28: Mum, You are an inspiration to everyone who knows you. You are a loving wife, mother, daughter, nanna and friend to all. You haven't got a bad bone in your body and we all love you for that. You have taught me, Natalie and David everything on how to be a beautiful person and we hope we can do you proud by following in your footsteps. You have given us the best upbringing possible and Natalie and David would agree that we all wish to have a relationship with someone that you do with dad. I know we don't show it all the time but we all appreciate you and would do anything for you. We hope to be the parents to our children that you and dad are to us and then in years to come be great grandparents as you are to Lewis, Ethan & Aimee. The whole family is proud of what you have achieved over the years and I aspire to be half the woman you are. You are the best mother and my best friend and I am so proud an honoured to be your daughter. Happy 50th Birthday Mum. All our Love xxxxxxxx
