many happy returns

Many happy returns of the day to the baby of the Riley clan who today turns 24! He use to come home with frogs in his pockets and bloodied knees he couldn't remember how he got. He was an imp looking for mischief but he had a sweet heart. Even then he was always looking out for other people. He has a gift for helping people, and he makes just about any kind of person feel comfortable in his presence. He's a man with deep convictions but a gentle playfulness that makes all our little ones cling to him. He's still got that incredible smile that could brighten the darkest of moods. I'm proud that he's my brother and blessed that he is one of my very best friends.
