Happy Birthday, Paul!




On June 18, 2008, our only son John Drake gave his daddy a kidney. Yesterday Paul Franklin celebrated his 58th birthday. Our family still rejoices over John's gift of life. Because of his sacrifice, we are able to have some more time with Paul.

I've uploaded a couple pictures. I think you will be able to recognize Paul, but I also want you to meet our son John. He is standing to the left of his daddy and has a little girl beside him.

We haven't stopped giving thanks for the Lord's mercies and faithfulness.

Oh, Dixie, I tear up as I read this, my dear. It so reminds me of Jesus!

Please give John an extra hug to thank him for his love for his Dad. I know the Lord will honor John for this.

Love
Jen

Jen,
Thank you for your kind words.

The kidney transplant was a defining moment in our family. We've never been the same. We are soooo thankful to have Paul. He's one of a kind. ;-)

Are you in Illinois? We live in northern Iowa.

Merry Christmas,
Dixie
