Joshua,  your Dad and I can hardly believe that twenty six years ago today, at 4:36 am, God blessed our family with you.  You weighed in at 7 lbs. 3 oz. and you were born approximately 20 minutes after we arrived at the hospital!  Talk about cutting it close!

Even at a very early age you were contemplating what you would do with your life.

We knew from an early age that you were going to be interested in design and how things were built.

We could also see, from the time that you were very young, that you definitely had plans to be an "entrepreneur".

Your dad and I are very proud of the fine young man that you have become.  We love your wit, your sense of humor and your amazing knowledge about so many subjects.

Happy Birthday, Josh, and may God richly bless you in the coming year!

We love you,
Mom and Dad
