Thread Name: Happy Birthday kytrad-Jean Ritchie Dec 8
Subject: RE: BS: Happy Birthday Jean Ritchie 12/8
Another year, a birthday shared with my now 21 year old son...he hardly fits through doorways anymore! I wish you a very happy birthday, Jean. I read your post on the Merrick thread, and it touched me so much to know that you were his friend. I've never met you in person, but I imagine that you are much like he was/is - a gentle generous soul. I picture Merrick with his dulcimer, always ready with a song to share, not for himself but for the song. You've been generous with me and with your other friends here and all over, and we are blessed to have your company.

I wrote a silly little song for my kids when they were little, and it's been getting around. I think that it fits here somehow...
"Love is like glue - it sticks us together
Love is like glue - it sticks us together
Love is like glue - it sticks us together
It sticks from me to you to me to you to me to you...."
