On August 24, Les, aka Papaw, turned 70! To celebrate the special occasion, my mom threw him a party the Saturday before his birthday. Of course we wouldn't have missed it! Lots of people came, Les' daughter and grandsons, brothers and sisters, the Curry's, Rachey and many dear friends. We talked, ate some yummy barbeque with all the fixins and then cake (or cobbler) and ice cream. All the kids had a blast running wild in the backyard. It was so much fun to see many people come together to help celebrate!
Les has been a part of our family for more than 10 years now. He is someone who is always willing to lend a listening ear, a shoulder to cry on or a comforting word. He has a way with all of his grandsons, which is evident just by watching them interact. They love him and he loves them.
Les, we are so glad you are part of our family, and thank you for letting us be a part of yours. We love you, Papaw! Happy Birthday!
