Happy 16th birthday…. Wow, the years have flown by. Just want you to know that a day doesn’t go by without me thinking of you.
While I am unable to do anything else, you need to know that I always have, and always will, love you. From the moment I first held you a little before 1:00am 16 years ago, I have never stopped. Honestly, I loved you from the moment I found out you existed with an ultrasound and were first called “Little O.”
PS- I chose this picture from December 26, 2008 in West Hartford Center (taken by a Hartford Courant reporter) because a copy of it has been in my wallet since I printed it from the December 29, 2008 online edition of the newspaper. Within the folds of the picture are also some of the four-leaf clovers you would randomly find and give to me.
