A Shared Birth Date - Amy and Tyler - August 17

Posted by

There is something special about a Mother and child sharing the same birthday. These two are very definitely special and they both share the same birthday: August 17.

Our daughter Amy has always "been there" for us. Many times, without hesitation, she has made the 7 hour drive from Vermont to Pennsylvania when Barbara or I needed assistance in any way. She loves to meet and help people. She is the best party hostess in Vermont (as her friends and neighbors will attest) and Amy is a magnificent teacher..students love her as her talents and love for the kids really shine through! She is so very special and we are thankful and so very proud that this wonderful young woman is our daughter!

Tyler is 12 today and, I swear, he has grown at least 4 inches in the past 6 months! He is a superb athlete, drummer, dancer, and jokester. He loves to entertain people - always "on stage." He is very definitely a "blond," but hey, it works for him ;-) We love Tyler so very much - he is just a great kid.

So here they are: Mother and Son - sharing a birthday, but sharing a whole lot more than that - We love you two!! Happy Birthday!

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
