  1. HI SAMMY,

    Happy Birthday…..

    I am sending you this link to share with your mom and dad and baby brother.
    I hope it gives you a lot of hours of happy reading ….

    Thanks again for all of the times you share your daddy with the students he coaches.

    You inspire him, and you inspire me, to make a difference.

    And all you had to do was be you, go figure – have fun, and a wonderful day,
