    Happy happy birthday. I remember watching you on our black and white tv. I was about 9. There is something about watching you, God truly has His hand on your life and I can see the Holy spirit there. My mom loved the Lord as much as you. The Lord took her home last year I miss her so much, but because of her I know Jesus, and I will see her again. Have a wonderful birthday. God bless you.
