Happy New Year

Tuesday, September 11, 2007


He came into our lives over 14 years ago. My daughter dragged him home with her from college and he was a handsome, charming, outspoken feller. He never hid his feelings of utter dismay over our crazy family.

He has never hidden his love for my daughter Chelle and he celebrates her at every opportunity. He is an exceptional provider for his family. What more could any mother want for her child?

We knew he was a helper but never realized his OCD until the vows were said. Everything around Kit is immaculate. He would come for a brief visit and was willing – even insistent – about helping around my home doing yard work and clean up where he could. He is the one that does the most giving but never leaves here without saying “Thanks for everything”.

He is a loving son-in-law, a wonderful partner for my daughter, a terrific father to Michael and Hope.

Last night I realized we had not gotten a card in the mail for Kit. He will receive a belated card, but today is the day for wishes and we wish him the best because he is THE BEST!

Happy 36th Birthday! We love you Kit.
