Happy 75th Birthday!

(Big Ted and baby Ted as his grandpa would so fondly refer to him when he was born)

My father-in-law turned 75 today! He is a wonderful Godly man who has loved his wife, cared for his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren with grace and compassion and served the Lord with humility throughout the twenty five plus years that I have been priviledged to know him.
My husband took a flight to Southern California Sunday afternoon to surprise his dad for his birthday. He wanted to honor his father and express his love by being there on this very special day. We wished the whole crew could have gone, but he was extremely grateful and overcome with gratitiude when my husband walked through the door.
We love you Grandpa Ted and miss you very much! May God grant you many more years of life! Thank you for always being there for us and living your life as a man of great faith!

Happy Birthday Ted!

Happy Birthday to your father-in-law Chris. What a special surprise for him. My Dad will be eighty-eight this month. Like Ted he blesses and enriches our lives. They have a precious legacy.
