April 7th

April 7, 2000
Jeremy and I were blessed with our first born.
Samuel Charles 

He loved semi trucks and dinosaurs.
When his little brother was born in May, 2002, he did not like him. He punched him in the stomach.

 It did not take him long to like his brother! They have become the best of buddies and are asked many times if they are twins.
 He grew and grew.

 April 7th he will be 18!

He likes Jeep and anything tech.
He enjoys running, shooting sports, air-soft and skiing.
He is a loyal friend. Will help others in need. Loves his cat Max. 
I could go on and on, but what I want to say is ..

Happy Birthday Sam!!
Wishing you a great birthday and year as you start your own journey towards your dreams.



  1. Happy Birthday to your handsome Sam!! I loved reading more about him and getting to know him a little better. Did he get his Jeep yet? The boys are going to miss each other when he goes to school. That's nice they are so close!
