Love, Dan


I am so excited to see your face when this is shown to you… Now where do I begin, I guess it is Happy Birthday, you have reached a major milestone and I am so lucky to be a part of your life for more than half of it.

I remember the first date, lunch by the ferry landing with Shell. It really was wonderful. We have had many great moments in time and happy memories. Together, watching our girls grow up, whether in dance or sports, they have brought countless smiles.

The reason I chose the picture of us in the kitchen is that we have spent a lot of time in the kitchen cooking for others and are still happy doing so. If a couple can get along in the kitchen, they can stay together - usually too many cooks “spoil the stew”. But not us. Some of the first times we entertained, we were both in the kitchen, the silver salmon smothered in sour cream, prime rib, and countless pecan pies. If we can get along in the kitchen, we can do anything together.

I am looking forward to many more birthdays with you, by your side.

Love you most of all,

Love, Richelle

Happy Birthday, Mom! I hope you have a wonderful day! I know we have had ups and down, but at the end of the day, you are my only Mom and I am the luckiest person in the world to have you by my side. I would never dream for anything more. You have always been there to support me, especially during the hardest times of my life. And I will be forever grateful for your unconditional love.

Can't wait for another 60 years - we'll be there for you the whole time! 120, here comes my Mom!

Please know that Kam and I love and adore you!

Love, Erika

It's impossible to put into words how much you mean to me - you're not only my Mom, but my best friend and confidante, my inspiration, role model, and the sun in my sky on gray days. There is not a day that goes by that I don't thank my lucky stars that you are in my life. Your unceasing smiles can brighten anyone's day and your creativity puts us all to shame :) I cherish our hours-long late night chats, unstoppable laughter and fun adventures. Thank you for everything you have taught me over the years; I'm certainly a better person because of you.

Happy Birthday! Cheers to another 60 years! And yes, even if I have to change your diaper one day (hehe) - every day with you is a blessing :)


Love, Kamron

Happy Birthday, Grandma! I'm lucky to have such a fun grandma who loves me. You always make me smile. I hope I get to see you soon - it's fun when you visit us in Portland!

Hope you do something as fun as the Great Wolf Lodge for your birthday!

Love you,

Love, Autumn

Thank you for welcoming me into your home over the years and sharing Erika with me. :)  It was always so nice to come "home" from college to your house for a while, relax and spend time with you and Dan!  I enjoyed spending 4th of July with you guys or just coming up for no reason at all but to say hello and get away from the busy city. 
I hope your birthday is wonderful and filled with everyone that you love!  Have a great day!!

Love, Tiff, Paul, Blake & Jase
