A Special Birthday Premiere Contest Winner

June twelfth, two thousand twelve, a special date when all our family had gathered near to offer tribute and to celebrate, your birthday, my dear husband- held so dear. We gathered at a steak house in a park; some fifty friends and family were there, with food and drink and birthday cake to mark your special day- revered with love and care. You had attained age seventy and five, a milestone cherished by all those you knew. A few years back, by-pass kept you alive- miraculous for sure- and happy you outlived your dad, granddad, and great-grand too, who passed from heart disease before their time. That special birthday brought great hope anew- for younger members now within their prime. Still doing well, as you're now eight-four, and with God's grace, new birthday, come next year- your eighty-fifth- we'll party even more and celebrate with thankfulness and cheer!
