I bet you think EVERYONE celebrates with a big bang on July 4th...well, in the Claes Family July 3rd is even a bigger day of celebration. It's Diane's birthday! Of course, Caron certainly did not think so the day we brought her home; however, I am sure she now thinks having Diane for a sister is cause for BIG celebration. Gerry's impression of Diane's birth is seared in his memory as the hottest July in St. Louis history....and the air conditioner was broken in his car.
In 31 years Diane has added mountains of blessings to our lives including a delightful son-in-law and now two heartbreakingly adorable grandsons. Happy Birthday, Diane.....and thanks for the memories!
