Your comment regarding the note you received from Deryk and the closeness the two of you share prompted me to send you a copy of the poem my son - a major in the Air Force sent me when my birthday card didn't arrive on time. Carmen
I will treasure this always
You are the best so don't feel forlorn
For we also rejoice in the day you were born
You are so thoughtful, devoted and strong
Expressing great love in your heart we belong
I am the luckiest son on this wondrous marble of blue
I thank God every day for my life emerging from you.
