The words I used with the photos above were written on the birthday card I selected to send my son for his birthday this year.  Though the words are not original, believe me, the son is.  Jonathan Aaron, my fifth born child entered the world on January 31, 1978.  My world has never been the same since!

I once wrote to him:
No one has ever been able to put a label on you, 
but there are many words to describe you:

Wonderful Father,
