Happy Birthday, Jacob

My dear Jacob: you were born with a tender heart and a gentle demeanor.
You also were born with a desire to do what is right--
to be a link of that unbroken chain of righteousness.
I am thankful for your integrity.
I am thankful, too, for your example of charity toward others.
Perhaps that is why everyone wants to be your friend.
I am sure it isn't because of your record collection, is it?
Or your shoe collection?
Or watch collection?
No, it is because of you.
I love you.
