Happy birthday this week to Beth Garris, Abigal Buckley, Dennis O’Flaherty, and Angele Sammons! This Saturday (Valentine’s Day) would also have been Uncle Tom (Still)’s birthday. He is my Godfather, mom’s brother, and Beth’s father. May God grant you all Many Years.
Happy Valentine's Day to everyone!
