When we lived in Greasby, Pam and I adopted our neighbour’s youngest son as our own token son. Andrew would regularly come across to our house for a drink and raid the biscuit tin. As he grew up, we went to all of his birthday parties.
Now Andrew is all grown up, has just graduated with an LLB at Liverpool John Moores University and today celebrates his 21st birthday. This will probably be his last birthday party and the only one we will have missed. Sorry Andrew but with so many trips to the UK this year for various reasons we just could not fit another one in.
Still we will be there in spirit to offer him many happy returns of the day, congratulate him on his great success at University and wish him all the best for the future.
