      Happy Birthday, Dad
      He left us his smile and his sweet memory, that the passing of time just endears. He left us his laughter to ring in our hearts, and comfort us all through the years. He left us his faith in the goodness of life and his courage to see it as such, and though we are grieved that he left us, we are grateful he left us so much.
      Your Loving Family
