You Have Given Me Much Joy - HAPPY BIRTHDAY - GAVIN

Special grandson
Grandma remembers so well the times you told your mom that you wanted to visit me.
The first image at the first home I built on this property and you wanted to visit me
before I moved to the city. 
This last picture
you made a visit when you were attending Vanderbilt University in Nashville.

Another visit you arrived with a special friend and fell in love with a little dog I named Bear.
He was found on my country road that early morning before you arrived.
Little Bear has had quite the life.  You took him back to your Fraternity house in Nashville
then on to your mom's after graduation, then on to Washington, DC where you work and now
just recently when visiting your mom and dad in Tampa, Bear was found a new home in Florida.
All along I knew in my heart that he was not a city dog and maybe now with some wide open
spaces he will adjust.

Ending with

H A P P Y   B I R T H D A Y....
with much love
from grandma.

What a sweet share and what a handsome and happy looking young man. Grandchildren do fill our lives with such warmth and joy, do they not?

I do remember when he took Bear with him. Such a sweet tribute.
