Riley was the perfect combination of Tough and Tender. I could give Tough examples about yard sports and snake bites. I could tell you about his Tender side especially when it came to his early love and sympathy for animals. But today, his 20th birthday, my thoughts go to the birthdays we celebrated together in the past...I don’t think we missed a single one. Riley’s Tenderness was evident in the love (and pound of butter) that went into the homemade cakes he made for me year after year. And for his 14th birthday, I took him to a skydiving simulator and watched how quickly he jumped into that uncontrollable wind tunnel, Tough as always. Happy Birthday my precious boy. I am celebrating you, the years we spent together and the special place you’ve always had in my heart that keeps you forever near. Love you!!
