February birthdays are finished, but March 2 follows quickly and once again,
we've all celebrated our Papa's 103 birthday.
Papa is bright, healthy and brimming with smiles as he sits waiting for his guests.
Papa, you have touched many peoples lives and have left a legacy
that gives hope to future generations.
It was a wonderful privilege to have the Primrose Gardens host this event.
Papa has been living here with Helen for five years and they truly feel loved and accepted.
We truly want to thank Sharon and her staff for adding all the
special touches that make a birthday party worth celebrating.
Sharon, with tears rolling down her eyes said,
"It's truly an honor to live among the crowd of witnesses who have run the race set before them..
and have thrown off all that entangles them and have run with perseverance,
the race of faith." Hebrews 12:1
What an incredible witness of people who daily surrender their life to God.
FLOWERS & BALLOONS
We thank you Helen for your special tender care for our Papa.
We all know that he is still with us because of your constant love and commitment.
Brother Peter opened the mealtime and offered the prayer.
In a natural spontaneous response, we all sang the 'Doxology'
It's wonderful how the siblings gathered around for their special photo shots.

And when he's been asked about how he has run the race of life,
he is quick to raise his hand and let us all know that with
God, all things are possible.
We wish you God's blessings, Papa.
