My man

"Am I a man
 Pops"

"You are
 son

 My 
 Spider man
 My 
 Iron man,
 And when 
 I am old and frail son;

 I pray,

 My
 Superman"

His smiles and hugs
could not be bought

    Dear James, Hope this finds You and YOURS Healthy and High in the Spirit. The Proud "Pops" I love to see a family wove together with The PEN Excellent. Could "His smiles and hugs" be rented I could use them. Wishing YOU and YOURS a Very Merry Christmas and a Healthy,Prosperous, and Blessed New Year. Sorry about not keeping in touch. LOVE ALWAYS and FOREVER YOUR Eternal Liege...Harry
