Happy Birthday, Katie!

Happy Birthday, Precious Girl! You would be turning 19 today, if you were still here in body.
I know that you are with us in spirit, and we will celebrate your arrival in our lives with joy today.
David came home last night and we have the joy of spending this day (and this week) together; that's a wonderful birthday present! We're going to have a birthday dinner in your honor in one of your favorite places.
Your birthday dinner in 2006
We all send our love, today, as every day. We're so thankful that you are our daughter!

I love this day, when I celebrate my Sophie's birth and think of you celebrating your beautiful daughter's as well. Our girls tie us together, and that is good.
