Happy Birthday, my wonderful, lovable niece! I remember the first time I saw you. You were about a year old and the cutest little girl that God ever made. And I loved you to pieces! (I'm sure you've heard the story of that day....I didn't want to turn you loose!)
You've grown up to be a such fabulous lady and I admire you so much!
Hoping you are having a terrific birthday!

Love you loads!
Aunt Jo
