Happy Birthday Ian! I remember you would really get into the Kings games when they were on tv back in their glory days. Hopefully they stick around in Sacramento.
Love, Rico

As I've gotten to know you I've noticed you have a really beautiful tenderness which I think is one of the reasons why you are such a great husband and dad. I hope you have a wonderful day today.
