HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY RICHIE

XOXO
AMY


I  HAVE  NOT  BEEN  ABLE  TO  POST  BECAUSE  MY  EYES  HAVE  BEEN


SWOLLEN  SHUT.  I  WILL  BE  GOING  TO  MY  EYE  DR.  ON  MONDAY.


MY  DIABETES  HAS  CAUSED  ME  TO  HAVE  NUMEROUS  LASER  SURGERIES.


I  AM  NOT  GOING  TO  BE  ABLE  TO  SPEND  AS  MUCH  TIME  ON  THE  COMPUTER


AS  I  HAVE.  I  AM  A  SLOW  TYPIST  SO  I  WILL  KNOW  MORE  MONDAY  HOW


MUCH  IF  ANY  I  CAN  BE  ON  THE  COMPUTER.  I  CERTAINLY  FEEL  LIKE  JOB


ON  SOME  DAYS. 


##################








ON  FEBRUARY  12,  1983,  BY  C-SECTION,  A  BEAUTIFUL  BABY  BOY  WAS  GIVEN


TO  ME  AND  MY  DH  BY  GOD....A  GIFT  TO  NUTURE,  LOVE,  AND  TEACH  IN


THE  WAY  HE  SHOULD  GO.



HE  IS  THE  ONLY  RAGAN  BOY.


IF  GOD  DOES  NOT  BLESS  RICHIE  AND  MEGAN  WITH  THE  GIFT  OF  A  SON


THE  RAGAN  NAME  WILL  END.


################


RICHIE  WAS  A  PERFECT  BABY......HE  WANTED  TO  EAT  THE  MINUTE  HE


WOKE  UP  AND  LOOK  OUT  WHEN  HE  GOT  WHEELS  (HIS  WALKER)


HE  WAS  FULL  OF  LOVE  AND  STILL  IS.  HE  NEVER  WANTED  TO  START


HIS  DAY  WITHOUT  A  BIG,  BIG,  HUG.


###################

RICHIE  WAS  AND  IS  SO  VERY  FUNNY.   HE  SHOULD  HAVE  BEEN  A  COMIC.


BELOW  ARE  PICTURES  OF  HIS  PERSONALITY





HYSTERICAL

HE  LOVES  TO  LAUGH



AFTER  A  LONG  HARD  DAY


WHEN  HIS  FOOTBALL  OR  COLLEGE

BASKETBALL  TEAM  OR  THE  THUNDER  LOOSE.

HE  LOVES  THE  THUNDER  PRO  BASKETBALL  TEAM.

IT  WOULD  BE  ON  HIS  BUCKET  LIST  TO  MEET


EVERY MEMBER  OF  THE  TEAM  BEFORE  A  GAME.


OVER  ALL  THE  YEARS  OFF  AND  ON  THAT  AMY


WAS  SICK  HE  HAS  NEVER  COMPLAINED,


OR  WHINED.






HAPPY  BIRTHDAY  RICHIE


I  AM  SO  VERY  PROUD  OF  YOU


I  WISH  YOU  JOY  FOR  YOUR


JOURNEY


STAY  ON  THE  ROAD  OF  THE


LORD


MAY  YOU  FEEL  LOVED  EVERY 


DAY  OF  YOUR  LIFE.


DAD  AND  I  LOVE  YOU  SO


VERY  MUCH


ALWAYS  REMEMBER  THAT  AMY  IS


ALIVE  AND  HER  SPIRIT  WATCHES 


OVER  ALL  OF  US  FROM  THE


GRANDSTANDS  OF  HEAVEN.





AS  ALWAYS  GRACIE  ANN  AND  I  THANK  YOU  FOR  SPENDING  A  PART


OF  YOUR  DAY  WITH  US  AS  WE  CELEBRATE  RICHIE'S  BELATED  BIRTHDAY.


HE  IS  SO  DEAR  TO  US.

A  GRACIE  ANN  PECK  AND  A  HUG  AROUND  THE  NECK.



SIMPLY  DEBBIE

OH Debbie......
Happy B-day to your Ritchie! I'm sorry you are having problems with your eyes. I hope the Dr has some answers for you. Diabetes is such a serious illness you have to take care of youself. My MIL had diabetes and my husband has Type 2..Speaking of eyes I thought I was seeing things with the pumpkins.....because I have things hopping all over the place here!!!!!
A great big hug,
Lynn

Oh Debbie I am so sorry to hear about your diabetes and the effect on your eyes. My oldest brother has the same problem with his and I feel helpless everytime he talks about it. Also my son Chad has Type 1 and my granddaughter Kaci was diagnosed at age 7 with Type 1 too. This has broke my heart and now I hear you have it too.
Honey please take care of yourself and know we love you.
Happy Birthday to your son. Your post was sweet.
Love
Maggie

Barbara said...

Deb...It has been a while...sorry about your eyes. Happy Birthday to Richie.

Sharon has got a feeding tube and she is doing 100% better. She had lost 40 lbs and was going down hill, but she is back and still bossy, so I know things are better. We talk about you often, so your ears should be red.

Miss talking to you, hope things get back to some kind of normal soon

Love,
Barbara

Hello Debbie so good to hear from you. I have eye problems too, had a corneal transplant about 6 years ago and am so sensitive to light. Happy belated to you precious Richie. I pray that God will send them a song to carry on the name. It is truly a blessing to have a wonderful supportive husband and even though things are not always perfect more goes on with love. Blessings

Love the pumpkins! I hope your eyes get better; cannot imagine not seeing you around the blogging world. Perhaps a few days of rest will help them.
