Today our daughter, Rebecca Joy, turns another year older. There are not words to describe how much we love this young lady. Every dad and mom knows what I mean, I am sure. But just to think of her birthday makes my heart want to burst.

Joy, I love you. I thank God for the day you were born. I will never forget telling your mother as she hurt with birthing pains that pain endures for the night but Joy comes in the morning and you did!

You are a great mother. You are a great daughter. You are a great friend. I wish God would allow us to live closer to each other but will be happy to love you from where ever I have to. I want you to know that I miss you today. I want you to know that I love you and I love your children, Benjamin and Lelia.

I want you to know that I am very proud of you. I want you to know that I pray for you and the kids everyday. I want you to know that your mother adores you. I hear about your every move and need from her.

I pray that God will greatly bless this day and all the days of your future. Just know this. We love you and we miss you.

Your loving parents

I am pretty sure we were traveling again. Already for the airport. There you are with a beautiful and happy smile. I love to see those smiles on your face.

Anyone ever seen a cuter girl in the world. You have brought so much joy to my life.

Bossy little Joy even back then. David trying to take over and can’t. I love you. As Sam says, a man in our church, have I told you lately that I love you.

Happy Birthday–I believe your first in Peru when we lived in Cayma. No cake just Lemon Icebox Pie, but you loved it and so did the rest of the gang.

Well, Joy, I want you to know that we love you very much. Have a happy birthday and receive some hugs and kisses from very far away from a couple of old people.

    I have no idea how to get a message to Joy, but would you wish her a happy birthday for me please.

    She never answers my emails.

    Herb says she never answers his either.
