69 years ago today, Mary Elizabeth Troy of Birr, County Offaly, Ireland, entered this Earth.

THANKS BE TO GOD!

I fell head over heels in love with this Irish Lass above in 1979 and truly married way up!

May she have many more birthdays and I be truly blessed to be here to celebrate them with her.

     I felt just like John Wayne did when I first saw Mary!

The movie “Brooklyn” might as well be our story with so many similarities and ending.
