I’m sure I share the feelings
of so many many more;
and I’m sure you’ve heard a lot of this
so many times before.
You have a special gift of strength,
and silently you beam.
Your patience, tact, and sentiment
all have no end, it seems.
I could go on for days,
expressing what you’ve done for us,
because in many many ways,
you’ve been kind, sincere, and just.
You have the kind of qualities
that come from deep within.
Here’s wishing you longevity,
from all your long time friends.
