Happy Birthday, Daughter Dear!

Happy Birthday, Dear Daughter!
***I dedicate this to you, baby, along with many birthday wishes!***
Corinne has been through a very rough two and-a-half years, having lost her husband in April 2005, leaving her with a couple of teen-aged sons and a cabinet shop to run. She had never had any hands-on dealings with the business and was tempted to sell, but was too concerned about what would happen to the employees. So, with the help of a newly-made office manager, she continued the business and is now a successful business woman!
She has chauffered boys to soccer matches all over California, and even England! She hasn't had a weekend to call her own in ages. She's gone through car accidents with beginning drivers, guitar lessons, garage bands and all-boy swim parties; with a lot more patience than her mother showed her.
Girl, you've come through the valley, and you're starting to walk on the mountaintops once again. We love you more than you can possibly know and wish the very best for you.

A very happy birthday to Corinne who obviously took after her very strong and resilient mother! Best wishes for many more wonderful years with her business and her boys and only the best that life has to offer from this point on.
