My birthdays, from this point on, are becoming more a grateful nod to the generous life of Virginia McGeehan O'Farrell, and to my father as well. They were such loving and devoted parents. My brothers, sisters, and I were exceptionally fortunate to be their children.
So tomorrow, if there are candles to be blown on a cake (with Henry's help, of course) I will make the secret wish I always make, and quietly say "thank you" to my Mom, lost nine years ago, in April of 2002. Happy Birthday Mom - it's as much your day as it is mine.
