An Open Birthday Post to Our Grandson RJ for his 21st Birthday!
Watching you grow into this marvelous young man has made us so proud. God has blessed us with your presence, and we could not have been more blessed. You walk into the room, and I am in awe of the fine human you have grown into.
I never could imagine that time flew by so fast. I am still in shock that you are now 21 years old. But, even though it seems like many moons ago you came into the world, I still remember it like it was yesterday.
On the day of your birth, we were so excited & could not wait to meet you; I was thrilled to be there to witness your birth & capture every moment and believe me, I sure didn’t. My camera was working overtime!!!!
I was honored that your mom wanted me in the room to be there for your birth. She pretty much insisted that I was there. Lol, I had never witnessed a birth before, and believe me when I say it was the most beautiful moment I have ever witnessed; it truly was!
You were the tiniest baby I have ever held. Oh, and the hair, oh my goodness, all that black hair you had, and you still have the beautiful black curly hair!
RJ, you brought so much love & joy into our lives. You made us grandparents for the first time, and we could not be more proud! You have grown into a fine young man. Your laugh is contagious, and your smile lights up the room. I always say that you are more like our son than a grandson to us, and I mean it!
Although You have endured the worst heartbreak of your life, with losing your mom and then your dad, they are watching you from the heavens beaming with joy, and you are making them proud every day, just as You make us proud every day.
Just remember to enjoy life & to be happy!
Happiest 21st birthday, Boopers! We love you more than you will ever know!
Love, Mommom & PopPop
