Happy Birthday to the Most Awesome Daughter Ever!

Thirty years ago, we were blessed with a darling baby girl. She is always laughing from her inner-most being, more fun than a barrel full of monkeys and has brought much joy to our family. She is a hard worker, god-fearing woman who is passionate about life and loves to hike the Colorado Rockies. Our lives have been enriched to have her as our daughter. Happy Birthday, Faith. We love you! Mom and Dad.
