... Jessica

Let's see... it was way back in Thomas Care Group when we first became friends.

And over the years you drove out to each and every job I'd ever held in the state of VA to meet for coffee on my lunch break. On an almost weekly basis!

Remember the time we ran into The Naked Cowboy in Times Square?

Or the time you set my kitchen on fire? While you were sharing a story about how you set someone else's kitchen on fire!

I bet most people don't know how much fun a hurricane can be when you're hunkered down in the Rickards home.

Our friendship has evolved through many Starbucks locations, chocolate parties & trips, through many trials & frustrations, through many laughs & tears, and through it all you've remained such a FAITHFUL friend. I'm grateful for your friendship and happy to celebrate another birth anniversary with you.

"This is my LIFE here we're talking about! We're not just talkin' about, you know, somethin' else, were talking about MY life, you know?" Corky St. Clair

"My mom gave me this 9 mill for my 13th birthday. Yeah. I'll always remember what she put on the card. 'Jesus Loves Winners'. That's why I always aim to win." Becky Ann Leeman

"We met at Starbucks. Not at the same Starbucks but we saw each other at different Starbucks across the street from each other." Meg Swan

Buster wanted to chime in too but he couldn't find anything appropriate to say so...

Happy Birthday Friend!

Ahhh! Love it! All my favorite quotes... you know me so well. I love you friend! I'm excited to see a new season of friendship at jerry-springerbucks. Scary! Are you coming to celebrate my birthday month at our fall festival?! I think it'll be right up there with the suma wrestling party!
