Willie my dear is 27 years old today! where has the time gone? it's flown by...so happy happy birthday to you...hope your day is fantastic and you have a wonderful year...tom was so excited to have willie, his little buddy..we now had a darling girl and a handsome boy....when willie was born, he had a cleft palate...it was a bit of a surprise...but, he got along great...he was so cute...he was 3 months old when they closed his lip...and i was actually sad that they were going to ruin his cute face....but, it was all for the best and he grew and grew and was darling.....willie was very independant...he was the kid that was getting his cereal in the morning...when he was not yet 2...he was climbing everywhere...i had to tape the fridge shut...he was into everything....willie was very strong, even as a little boy...he was practising, even then to be a rock climber...he had such great upper body strength....willie loved to tell jokes and be silly...i remember him wearing kelly's hula skirt at her birthday party...acting very funny about it...willie took speech therapy when he was little...and then never stopped talking...he often had to stay after school because of this problem...he started playing tennis when he was about 9...he loved it and worked hard at it...he loved to play with tom...he was the best little and big brother....he has always been my sweet, sweet willie....he is very dependable...will get the job done...he is very particular about how certain things are done...like folding his t-shirts...he had to do it himself...i think he still does...when willie was a senior, he got straight A's which really surprised me...he had a problem throughout school and had me convinced that he just couldn't do the work...turns out he just never DID the work...for about 11 years!...after that he did fantastic...did wonderful in college and got his masters of accounting...accounting no less....math was never his best subject...once again he surprised me...i'm so proud of all that he's accomplished...he served a wonderful mission to new york...and bermuda..after he returned home..he met a beautiful girl with a great name.....kelly...they have become a wonderful couple with my darling first granddaughter....kate.....so, willie is just the greatest son ever...i love you so much..you are a great inspiration to me...love you always..mom
