Happy 85th Birthday Papa!

85 years have passed since that day in the little temporary home (later the chicken house) on our farm when Calvin Theodore Johnson was born.  Imagine calling the same address home his entire life.
He has given me a lifetime of precious memories.  Childhood memories of being carried upstairs, building my tree house, being comforted and cared for in times of need, the strong hands that give the best back rubs, time on the farm, family vacations, antique car doings, teaching me to drive, setting an example of how to act, the teacher - showing me how to do things, gifts he's given from the heart, the ultimate craftsman, humor and the gift of gab, his work ethic, the helper - setting an example to follow, being a good friend, loving his family,...
To Dad,
This is a special birthday wish that comes with love to you
It brings warm and heartfelt thanks for all the thoughtful things you do--
It also comes to let you know you mean more to me each day
From everyone your life has touched in such a loving way.

Wishing Dad all the best today and everyday as he celebrates his 85th Birthday!
Love hugs and kisses being sent across the miles!
Love, Diane
