Mr. Music

I loved you before I even knew you
You needed me and I needed you more
You loved music...
Loved to be outside...
Still, there was music
You braved the slide...
Braved the dreaded pitching machine...
Braved the hospital...
Braved the waves...
And still there was music...
And music
May there always be music in your life!


"Happy 35th Birthday, RJ!"

Awwww, from the mom of 2 preteens, may I ask? Does it ever get any easier watching them grow up...it's already going by way too quickly! A very special way to say happy bday to your little dude (moms can always say stuff like that, right?) Hope he enjoys a very wonder life that continues on with a beautiful melody! Happy bday to your music man.

Sweet..isn't this how we feel about our "kids" always. My grandmother thought of my father as her "baby" until she died...they never understand that do they?
