HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dearest Adrienne,

Your 31st birthday!!!!! Where have the years gone? 31 years ago they wheeled me into surgery, delivered a 5 lb. 14 oz. baby girl and life flighted her off to Hermann. I saw you about 6 days later. My little girl and it wasn't at all what they told us it would be. A totally different diagnosis and you would be with us forever! Dr. Adcock sure was mistaken. But maybe there is a little to be thankful for in that. You were treated more like a normal child than I would have been with you had I known you were only going to be with me for 23 years.

This is the eighth birthday since you left to go live with God. It doesn't seem that it was that long ago. I know Heaven is wonderful for you. None of the trials and tribulations that you had here on earth. Finally a perfect life for you! It doesn't make the pain of not having you any less for me though!

I hung up my angel picture that I had made here (it got a little messed up in the mail) and had a second one made for my office at work. I can always look at the pictures and imagine you walking through beautiful fields of flowers in Heaven. I find some comfort in that vision.

Hope your birthday with God was fabulous today! I love and miss you dearly. Still waiting for that special dream.

Early Happy Birthday!

Hey sweet girl........

Brent and the girls are coming in tomorrow night so we can do your yearly birthday party and send your balloon to Heaven. I think it will be a pizza party this year and the girls will pick out your cake.

We are going to have the party at Petie and Dick's house because I will be over there house/dog sitting. Remember Adam Meyer? It is his parents. You went to a party there once. Adam is becoming a doctor. He lives in Boston now. I have a picture of him on your memory board from your memorial service that was from your "Sweet 16" birthday party. It is hard to believe this will be the eighth year celebrating without you!

I think I will have the girls post you a little note when they are here. They always ask to go to Aunt Adrienne's when they are here. You are always in their thoughts.

You know I love you and miss you so very much! Amazing....this is the first time I have written to you and not cried! Look for your balloon Sunday! Happy early 31st birthday! I will also come on the 25th!

Hugs, kisses and love,
