My Sweet Sonny Boy Turns 48

 Master of all he surveys....Age 3, 1969, a true water baby right from the start. Well, not THE start. He hated getting a bath when he was an infant. 
With his idol.....Dad. He followed him everywhere!

1981  He loved playing basketball and while he didn't make the team in his last two years of high school, due to a badly sprained ankle the day before tryouts, he still plays ball often. The guys he plays with call him "The Old Man, " but they are impressed with his skills and stamina. 

Two sisters were more than he could tolerate at first, but they finally made peace  and now they get along well together.  1973

Now he is the father of two beautiful girls; a hardworking family man, very good dad, loyal husband,  compassionate, kind, animal lover and excellent son. 

I wish you the happiest of birthdays, my sweet sonny boy,  and a wonderful life to come, whatever happens in the future.  You have helped to raise two wonderful girls, who are just as fine, smart and good as you are. We could not love you more.
