HAPPY BIRTHDAY, YOU HANDSOME MAN



I'M  CALLING  AND  BLOGGING

TO  LET  EVERYONE  KNOW

THAT  IT  IS  SOME  ONE'S

BIRTHDAY  WHO  IS  VERY

FAMOUS.....

IF  YOU  SAID 

PRESIDENT  ABE  LINCOLN

YOU  WOULD  BE  ANSWERING

TRUE...

BUT  THAT  IS  NOT  THE  PERSON

I  WAS  LOOKING  FOR.

I  CHANGED  THIS  LITTLE

GUY'S  DIAPERS  LONG  BEFORE

HE  BECAME  FAMOUS.

YEAR  BY  YEAR

I  WATCHED  THIS  SWEET

HUMORIST

GROW  UP  TO

MARRY  A  BEAUTIFUL

GIRL......

AND  BECOME  A

RESPONSIBLE  ADULT...

BUT  YOU  ARE  STILL  OUR

"LITTLE"  BLOND  HEADED 

 ANGEL.


I  STILL  REMEMBER  THAT  DAY

WE  INVITED  EVERY  STUDENT 

IN  YOUR  CLASS  TO  YOUR

BIRTHDAY  PARTY  BECAUSE

WE  DIDN'T  WANT  TO  HURT

ANY  ONE'S  FEELINGS  AND

THEY

"ALL"

CAME  PLUS  MORE.

YOU  STILL  LOVE  BIG

BIRTHDAY  PARTIES.

I  AM  SORRY  YOU  HAVE

TO  BE  MANY  STATES  AWAY

FOR  MANAGER'S  MEETINGS,

ON  YOUR  BIRTHDAY.




HAPPY  BIRTHDAY,  RICHIE.

YOU  ARE  GETTING  OLD,  SON!!!

THE  BIG

"28"

BIRTHDAY!!!!


HAPPY  BIRTHDAY  FROM  AMY

I  KNOW  THIS  IS  ONE  DAY  YOU

MISS  HER  AS  YOU  ALWAYS  HAD

LUNCH  TOGETHER,

A  SPECIAL  TIME  TO  CONNECT

OR

WE

ALL  WENT  OUT  TO  EAT!!!

THOSE  WERE  BEAUTIFUL

AND  FUNNY  TIMES  AS

YOU

KEPT  HALF  THE

RESTAURANT

LAUGHING...

YOU  WERE  A  WONDERFUL

BROTHER  RICHIE

AND  AMY

LOVED  YOU  VERY  MUCH

AFTER  SHE  GOT  OVER

THE  TIME  YOU

TIED  HER

BED  ROOM  DOOR  SHUT

AND  SHE  COULDN'T  GET

OUT...IT  IS  A  GOOD

THING  YOU  WERE  ONLY

5  YEARS  OLD  AND  COULD

RUN  FAST.





DAD  AND  I  HAD  A

BIRTHDAY  PICTURE  MADE

FOR  YOU.

WE  CHOSE  SEPIA  BECAUSE 

WE  THOUGHT  IT  ACCENTED

OUR  FEATURES.

DAD  EVEN  PUT  ON  HIS 

 BEST  HAT  AND  YOU  KNOW

I  ALWAYS  WEAR  A  HAT.

WE  LOVE  YOU  RICHIE.

WE  ARE  SO  PROUD  OF  YOU.

WE  COULD  NOT  HAVE  HAND

PICKED  A  BETTER  SON.

PLEASE  DRIVE  SAFE  OUR  SON,

I  PLEAD,

YOU  ARE  ALL  WE  HAVE

LEFT.

YOU  ARE  SO  LOVED  RICHIE.



AND  KEEP  EACH  ONE  OF  YOU  SAFELY

IN  HIS  ARMS.

THANK  YOU  FOR  JOINING  US  IN  THE

CELEBRATION  OF  OUR  SON,

RICHARD  ALFRED  RAGAN  II'S

28  BIRTHDAY.

PRAY  FOR  HIM  AS  HE  TRAVELS

OUT  OF  HIS  STATE  AND  MANY  MORE

FOR  MANAGERS/CO-OWNERS  MEETINGS.

I'VE  GOT  TO  GO  AS  WE  ARE  TRAVELING

OUT  OF  TOWN,  ALSO.

HAVE  A  SUGAR  SWEET  DAY

ANGEL  HUGS

SIMPLY  DEBBIE


PLEASE  NOTE  THAT  IN  NO  WAY  WAS  I  MAKING  FUN  OF  THE
SWEET  COUPLE  IN  THE  PICTURE...WE  ALL  KNOW  THEY  DIDN'T
TAKE  THE  GREATEST  PICTURES  BACK  THEN  AND  JUST  THE 
OTHER  NIGHT  I  WAS  LAUGHING  THAT  IT  LOOKED  LIKE  US.
I  WOULD  NEVER  MAKE  FUN  OF  ANYONE...I  WAS  JUST
KIDDING  AROUND  WITH  MY  PRECIOUS  SON.

Debbie, These sentiments of love expressed to your son sound like they are straight from your heart. I do not think you could give him a better present for those thoughts will last for ever.
I hope his travels are safe, and that the business trip will be successful.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, RICHIE! HOPE YOU ARE HAVING A FUN DAY, ANYWAY, AND THAT YOU HAVE MANY, MANY, MANY MORE!
Have a fun weekend and hope it's warmer everywhere.
Hugs- Tete

Happy Birthday Richie Bear...
You are never far from my heart.

I pray that your journey is a safe one, and that you accomplish what needs to be done. I know that you had a special day where ever you were for your birthday. Rays of sun radiate where ever you may be. They always have sweet boy.

I too, remember the day you tied Amy's door shut. That memory made me laugh. Oh was she ever after you, and yes you did run fast, you might have even had to take off on that scooter of yours.

Hugs to you sweet Richie Bear. I love you, Aunt Sherry

Happy Valentine's Day to you!

Happy Birthday to your son! It was so great to read your sweet sweet comments on my OWOH post. I know you are right. If you still haven't been able to follow anyone new, it may be that you are already following the limit of 300. (I read this on someone's blog)

Your blog is great inspiration and you have an incredible spirit. I do hope you return to mine sometime Debbie :)

Happy Creating!
