for my father in law

Since it's your birthday week...and you always do so much for others...I decided to carve out some time today to sift through the hundreds of photos of all 7 of your grandchildren to find the very best one I could...and even though it isn't the greatest (you know how hard it is to get all 7 doing the same thing!) I wanted to edit it for you and post it here along with a thank you for just being you. You are very special to me because you (and Sue, of course) raised the man of my dreams. Each time he carries my suitcase, opens my door, helps me with the kids, empties the dishwasher, runs my bath, etc....I am reminded of what a wonderful father you are to have taught him all of these things. I don't tell you often enough that I am thankful for all that you have done...and for all that you continue to do. And I hope this photo suffices for the time a couple of years when they are all old enough to bribe with candy...we'll get an excellent one. Until then, this one will have to do. I also ordered you an enlargement for your office. Love you!grandbabies, July 09

I had to tell you that I was on facebook the other day, and smiled when I saw that we're apparently playing the "8 degrees of separation" game. You have done family pictures for MANY of my friends, who were bragging on how wonderful you are! My friend Jennifer had a link to your site on her facebook page, doing some advertising for you. I'm not sure if you knew or not, but lots of your clients have been ADPi's! What a small world! I hope all is well with you and your beautiful family!
