Happy Birthday, Sweet Rose

See that lovely lady to the left? That’s Mrs. Winter to you, Nita to me.  Nita and her son AJ came into my life at a time I didn’t know I needed someone.  I needed her.

For all the drama and upheaval I’ve gone through this year, 2008 has been the happiest, if not the strangest, year of my life.  She completely blew me away.

Today is her birthday.  Happy birthday, Sweet Rose.  I love you very much.
