Happiest 70th +14th Birthdays to Papa + Isabel!

01.24.11 Happiest Birthday to my Poppy. You're 70 today. You actually have
2 b-days.
The next one will be this Thursday 01.27.11. You'll be 69.
Crazy, huh?
It's a long story and it all had to do with the mix-up when you first came to this country.
If it weren't for you and Mom, where would I be?
Where would all of your 5 kids be?
You and Mom sacrificed everything and came to this country with nothing.
You knew no one, you had nothing.
Now, look at you. 5 kids. 9 grandkids and
A whole lot of living...
Thank you for working so hard.
Thank you for never giving up.
Thank you for all you do for us.
Thank you for loving us.
We are so very proud of you...My munchkins, Tim + I adore you.
You deserve the best in life...
Wishing you a lifetime of happiness and more birthdays to come!
mahal kita, your 2nd born...

awww...thanks, Dionne! Yea, about 45 years ago, something happened with his passport info... somehow it got screwed up and US gov't said that my Pop was a year older than he really was when he arrived to the States and messed up his my Pop has two Pop corrected me and said that I had it the other way around...1/24 he's 69 and 1/27 he's 70...I can't keep it straight. My folks mean the world to me and I love them for all the sacrifices they've made for me and my sibs. They helped me make the person I am today...y'know Dionne...thanks for visiting me...seems like you're the only one that pops in for a visit and for that I'm utterly grateful...xoxo
