To: Paul DeLaurell
Happy Birthday to my loving husband. You may be a year older, but you're still the love of my life.
—Cindy Novak

To: Carol and Dean Higgins
Hi Mom and Dad. You agree to disagree, and taught me tolerance. One liberal, one conservative; one fond of words and the other an accountant; one an atheist and the other an church elder; Democratic and Republican county treasurers of your own political party at the same time. I can count on you to disagree about just about everything - except I know you'll both be listening to PHC. Love from your daughter
