Celebration of a Birthday

Today is the birthday of my third-born, my first son, Delbert. He is a loving husband, father and grandfather. He goes to his job daily to keep our community supplied with clean, safe drinking water.
Top row: A one-year old; Delbert's sixth birthday; his Mom and Dad; toddlin' around.
Center: Delbert with wife, son & daughter-in-law and grandchildren; his daughter; his younger son; Delbert and the love of his life.
Bottom: Three months old; with his maternal grandfather; his Mom is in this picture with her parents and her siblings; oops, how did that get in here twice?
Happy Birthday, Delbert!
We love you.
The frame of the collage is the exact silver of the birthday boy's hair.

This is a current picture of Delbert with his daughter, Sheena

Happy Birthday, Delbert! I love all of the pictures and remember what a cute little guy and handsome teenager he was. Unfortunately, I have not seen Delbert a lot during his adult life. I know you are very proud of him and his family.

Shelly, pictures a nice reminders of the way we were. The real treasures are the offspring!

Vee, Delbert has done well, and he and Denise have raised some good kids. Sheena will be coming home from her overseas posting this month!

Happy Birthday to Delbert! What a cute little guy he was and such a handsome fellow now. :)

Can't believe that's your baby, Vanilla.

Lin, actually I have a child five years younger than Delbert. And one five years older, and one in between them. Thanks for the good wishes.

Nice pics- What a great family line. And a happy day to him (late, but I'm working on getting caught up)

Sharkey, thanks. And that includes thanks for your faithfulness in "catching up" when I know you are so very busy!
