  1. We remember like it was yesterday the day you were born and we were at the hospital to see Nora & Phil’s big baby boy who was on his knees trying to climb out of the crib. Lance was an adorable and very active little boy. We were honored to be chosen to be your godparents at your baptism. We love you Lance and can hear you calling Aunt Bobbie & Unka Don in your own special way. Forever in our hearts.
    Uncle Don & Aunt Bobbie Matthew 11:28
