our Son, We have always been so proud of you and we will continue to be
proud of you. The time has come for you to leave home and start your
new life. We never thought tomorrow would come, but here it is. We know
you will do great things in your military career. We wish you a very
"Happy Early Birthday Patrick!" It is time for me to let go of your
hand...but I will never let go in my heart. We love you, and we are so
very blessed to have you as our Son. Anchors Aweigh!
