Happy 20th



My youngest daughter, Melissa turns 20 today. A milestone birthday. No longer a teen and becoming such a lovely, young women.

She has the kindest, happiest personality and is such a fun person to be around. She is always smiling and ready to give an encouraging word when you need it. She has more friends than I can count.

She is a busy girl - involved in the many activities of her MSU Pompon Team, as well as working two jobs. This is in addition to being a great student, about to begin her junior year at college.

And, she has big dreams, with an interest in the fashion world that may take her to the big city someday. If anyone can accomplish what she sets out to do - she will be the one.

So, Happy Birthday to Melissa - born 20 years ago in New Jersey and the bright light of our family today!
