HAPPY BIRTHDAY RYAN - December 29


Ryan was born December 29, 1986, weighing in at 9 lb. 4 oz. He was born with pneumonia in both lungs so was in the hospital for 10 days. He seemed so big in the incubators next to 2 pound babies.

Going home day!

Grandpy Plemmons was so excited to see Ryan and hold him.

Isn't he cute? Even with the bowtie...
Ryan is a white tuxedo.

Ryan is in his dad's suit. Notice the pants are hanging way off the feet. He is either singing or preaching. Memories...

Happy Birthday, Ryan!
It's hard to believe you are turning 22 today, Monday, December 29. You have been a real inspiration to me. There were a few years when I would have thought you would never recover from your grief and bitterness. After your dad died, it seemed that you crawled up into your shell and we were strangers - living in the same house. What a change has taken place in your life after you became a Christian. There is no greater joy for a mother than that her children are walking with the Lord. I am so proud of you. I decided to post a 'few' pictures. Usually, you are on the other side of the camera and we do not get many pictures of you personally. Here are a few that I thought the readers may find interesting. Enjoy. I'd love to hear comments from you. I love you!

Happy Birthday Ryan! We can hardly believe the change in you! From someone who would hardly say anything to you, to someone who is so loving and kind! Christ has made the difference!! It is wonderful to turn your life over to God and to see what He can do for you and through you!! I love the pictures and the memories! I especially like the one of you singing in front of the piano. We are looking forward to seeing you this week, if it works out. We love you!
