FC: 80 | Happy Birthday Victor
1: Victor, Wow! It's your 80th birthday ... so many wonderful memories flashing by, from begging to stay over on the second day of your honeymoon, to a simple snow sled ride; the unbeatable fluffy pancakes, best beef noodles, a Sunday afternoon ride ending in McDonalds (a real treat then) and debating whether I should have the cheeseburger or the fish-fillet. Memories of you and Mary helping Dianita in her great adventure in moving to Delaware; and most recently sharing with us the memorable day of her wedding.... You've always been there for us, and today on this very special day, we want to say from the bottom of our hearts, Thank you!! Thank you for being that special person in our lives! God Bless! May you have the grandest of birthdays.... Happy 80th birthday, Chan!
