Here is a poem that our friend Cynthia made for KB's birthday:
A baby girl was born thirty-two years ago.
Her mom and dad were thrilled with every little toe.
She was the perfect child for baby number one.
Little did they know of the life that’d just begun.
In the Frito Lay Truck, she was her father’s mate,
And off to the day care – Their daily morning date!
She took dad’s job to heart - a little more, maybe…
Earning her the nickname – The Frito Lay Baby.
With smiles, joy, and laughter, she loved her childhood years,
Once crossed a busy street and frightened Mom to tears.
She tried to tell her mom, who just didn’t understand
To get her mom some tulips, this risky trip was planned.
Dancing, loving music, on to her teens she went.
A socialite – her time, with many friends, was spent.
Loving Bryan Adams and a Michael Jordan fan:
Her love of basketball could have come from this tall man.
But her heart was not meant for these two famous men,
High school brought another who was her “Perfect 10”.
Once he came, it was hard, any other men to see.
They fell in love, and so began, their love story.
Twelve years and four kids more, they’re an old married pair.
She still loves friends and talking while she does your hair.
But we’d like to warn you: Guard your cell phone and your food.
She would loose or break the first and steal the latter, if she could.
She loves to sing, does it well ( Bryan would be proud).
And when she makes mistakes, her laugh you’ll hear most loud.
She loves going camping, whether near or far,
Playing Bunco with her friends and her DVR
But spending time with family, if her heart you knew,
Is, of all the things, what she really loves to do.
Whether she’s at Bear Lake or doing PTA,
In her big suburban, this is where she wants to stay!
We love you Keri Beth – for us, you’d do anything!
(Except maybe if it includes a motor with two wings.)
And so we’d like to say in every single font,
“You are the best mom, friend, and spouse that anyone could want!"
