Thank you for being such a great man of faith, who knows how to put God first and for leading us all to our heavenly home!!
And, I know we already hit #37, but our littlest one wanted to chime in and thank you for being his Daddy and that he can't wait to meet you, be held by you and smooched by you in October...
Happy birthday to my wonderful, handsome husband!
I love you forever and always!!
