Since this Seasons Greetings just a year ago;
We had a blessing in disguise.
We do not understand or know;
Like the wonder in the skies.

God only knows why a baby face;
A Gift from Heaven could not stay.
Just so "Angela" took an angels place;
"The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away"

Dan and Tom have added two more;
Marilyn and Shirley have joined the clan.
They are scattered some what from ship to shore;
They would like to be present but none of them can.

If we count our blessings and all our joys;
Our health and happiness and out two little boys.
George & Linda has a boy named Mark;
Mike, Named by Rita & Bill & the Stork.

Whether near or far - We're still a clan;
From the smallest child to the oldest man.
Our Children, grandchildren and Great-grands;
Our In-laws, love Christmas, were in pretty good hands.
