Make a wish sweet girl


22 Yrs. ago today a precious little girl was born at 3:38 pm to Rick and Jackie Hemmer. She WAS the most beautiful baby we had ever seen (really she was). We named here Brianna Marie Hemmer, she was 9# 4 oz and 22 inches long.

About 1 month into her little life she became a screaming baby and screamed almost every night until she was 4 1/2 months old. They called it "Colic", We called it "pre-suicidal"....not fun, for any of us.

After that awful experiance, you became that happy baby again. I guess your tummy straightened itself out. We started having lots of fun going to the park, bike rides and you were the hit of the neighborhood. All the little girls wanted to play with you when ever they could.

It seems you did'nt stay little for long. You did everything early. You sat by yourself at 4.5 months and you walked at 8.5 months. We just couldnt keep you down. Talking came early also, and once you started you didnt stop. When you started to talk in sentences you would talk so fast that you'd have to take big breaths every few seconds to reset yourself. You were quite entertaining.

School was always easy for you, You got your smarts from you mommy. Conferences were always fun, Your teachers sounded something like this, "Brianna is a wonderful student, she is very well behaved, she is kind to the other students, her homework is always done but she never raises her hand....... We heard that part all the way to high school :)

College flew by so fast......at least we think it did, only 1 semester left and you'll be a full fledged nurse. We know you'll be a great nurse with your ability to reason, your intelligence and the compassion you have for others.

You have never given us a lick of trouble!
You spared us that stereotypical "teenage girl senerio".
You have Jesus in your heart and it shows.
We couldn't have hand picked a better role model for our son's.
We have never had to worry about where you are, or what you're doing.
You chose great friends, and trusted God to bring that "special someone" into your life. Now look what happened......Your getting married, Yay for Chris Lewis :)
You make us smile & laugh and sometimes we feel like you're a dream.
You are a dream come true little girl and we have been blessed by your presence in our life.
We hope you have a wonderful Birthday Brianna.

We are so proud and we Adore you

Love Dad and Mom
