especially after Lou took me for his wife! Soon we had Slyvia, Tripp and

Greg. Then along came David, Matt and Meg. Pretty soon after arrived Karli and

Halie. That finished up our big happy family! We have all enjoyed much

love and laughter. I certainly hope it's a long time before my hereafter!
