Hello, Springtime! Hello, Sweet One. Hello! and Happy Birthday with all our love!
Unlike most children, you were first held by your father, but then you were too young to remember -- only a few minutes old!
Do you remember being held and blessed by author William Saroyan when you were only a few months old?
Do you remember toddling to the front door to greet Papa, and when you arrived there, turning away, because you were so upset that he had been away for so long?
Do you remember toddling next door to visit Virginia Newes, our neighbor who adored you?
Do you remember how you loved to draw, and how amazing your drawings were?
Do you remember when you first picked up a camera on the top of the Wilbraham Mountain and started taking photos of the wonders of country life?
Do you remember barreling around the corners of East Longmeadow with your mom in order to get to the next yard sale, sooner rather than later?
Do you remember helping Uncle George pick apples -- you were his favorite apple picker!
Do you remember?
