Happy Birthday Alyssa!
Today is the girl's birthday! It's hard to believe she is 5.
Here she is just about a hour old.
It was 5 years and 4 months ago that Mark was diagnosed with cancer. At the time he wasn't sure how long he would live. He set a few goals the first was to see and be there when our first grandchild was born. He was so happy to see that day. He got to hold her first, right after the doctor, the nurse and her mom and dad. Funny thing is she had more hair than he did. Not only was he there when you were born, he also made it to your first birthday. He passed away a month later; I know you may not remember him, he loved you. I also know that no one can take his place, I'm glad you have your other grandpa's and Poprock that love you too!
Happy Birthday little girl!
