Happy Birthday Dad (and Mom)

Happy Birthday Dad.

Baby with Ken

Last year was a hard year but I’m so impressed with the resilience you’ve shown. You’ve always been a role model for me and I still look up to you. Since we can’t be with you to celebrate in person, we wrote you a song.

When You’re 84
You're getting older, long silver hair
Mostly in the back
It's time for a big celebration                        
Birthday greetings septuagenarian
Your house is so big with many bedrooms
You never lock the door
Can we still visit you, can we still be with you
When your eighty-four

Your woodshed is so tall
And if you say the word
We'll help you stock it full

You can be handy, and now you cook
caesar salad dressing
You can roast toast by the fireside
Take the kids for tractor rides
Planning the garden, no more chard
Who could ask for more
Can we still visit you, can we still be with you
When your eighty-four

Happy Birthday Mom.

Wherever you are, we’re thinking of you and missing the light you brought to our lives.
