Happiest of Birthdays to you, dearest Aaron. I am praying for your wisdom, words and strength and am confident that the Lord will use you to be a blessing for SITAG.

Joanna, you have a gift for making people feel loved. I am praying that that love comes back to you so that you know how well you are loved. I miss you.
