Happy Birthday Kristine Partal

Happy Birthday Kristine,

I hope it is everything you want it to be.
I have loved you from the day I first heard your name all those many years ago when Ricky was hiding at your house.  I know people have compared you to Ashley and this is true. Yet I see something else in you as well.  As I have watched you grow up I see many similarities to Ricky's Grandma Angie. These characteristics can not be learned or copied, they are not installed by a parent, found in old souls or passed on to  those born of privilege.
Family came first, all of them. She, like you was a caregiver and took care of her parents, brothers, neighbors and even her son’s new girlfriend. She never judged or held a grudge. She was an absolute lady from head to toe with a backbone easily strong enough to carry the responsibilities of her entire extended family.   I loved her, admired her and miss her everyday. I try very hard to live my life as she would have wanted me to.
She would have loved to have met you, and you her. You are an amazing women and I am admire your convictions and grace under pressure. I know she would be happy that you and Ricky are following your own paths and dreams.
They say there is only one other person that can love a son as his mother does and it's true. I can see your love for him and his for you and I look forward to celebrating many happy birthday's with you.   All my love,


PS: I hope you take some time for you today. I wanted to share what I started for your wedding blog with you and this seemed like a good time.
