Happy Birthday, Bill! Seventy-one years ago today the doctor who delivered you predicted that you wouldn’t live! Both you and Mother were not given any hope of living past a few hours after your birth! Here you are: seventy-one years later! Life isn’t easy but still you’re a son, husband, father, grandfather, brother, cousin, uncle, friend and neighbor.
Heavenly Father, thank You for Bill and for giving him life. I love Bill so much and You love him even more!
Thank You for Mother. Thank You for taking her this morning without any pain. She simply stopped breathing. Exactly 71 years after she nearly died giving birth to her fourth baby, William Claude. I love Mother so much and You love her even more!!!
