40 years on this planet and almost half of them with me! Your exuberance,
vision, loveliness and sweet-hearted nature have brightened the lives of
our children, mine and everyone's whom you touch! On the occasion of your
40th birthday, we are supposed to give you gifts; but you have given us all
so much that it is difficult to imagine what could serve as a token for
your devotion, compassion and love. We all enjoy you every day; may this be
the next of many, many blessed birthdays! From all of your friends, family
and me - we love you! Your E.
