Happy 54th Birthday for posterity...

I want to capture the sentiments of my family's cards for posterity:

From mom and dad:

Son, you don't hear this as often as you should, but hope you know what a great son you are...

...someone to love, someone to respect, someone to be grateful for. Happy Birthday with Love

Handwritten: John, So many thanks for all the help for us! We do love you so very, very much and you'll always be in our hearts. Love you, Mom & Dad.

From my sister Vivian:

Happy Birthday, Brother. Every candle on your cake is another year the world has been lucky enough to have you in it....

...Hope you know how very special you are to me!

Handwritten: I hope your 54th is the best one yet! I love you. Love, Vivian & Jeff (and Smokey , of course!)
