Sweet and Lovable, a Delight to Everyone
Julieann, the eighth of the Green children, was born May 2, 2008. A delightful baby from the beginning, Julieann quickly stole the hearts of Mom, Dad, brothers and sisters. In late October 2008, our precious girl was diagnosed with infantile spasms, a rare form of epilepsy. As her illness unfolded, we began documenting her progress on this page so that friends and family would know specifically how to pray for her. We are so thankful to the Lord that her outcome so far is very good. For now, Julieann is seizure-free. We know that the seizures could return tomorrow, or in 10 years - so please continue to pray for her.

Friday, September 18, 2015 - Happy 50th Anniversary!


Tonight we celebrated Grammy and Grandpa's 50th anniversary (which was actually Sept. 17th).


The family met at the Doubletree Hotel for the seafood buffet where everyone sampled crab legs, oysters,


crawfish, salmon,


and an excellent cut of prime rib steak.


I stopped counting how many plates of crab legs Grandpa ate.


James was a very content baby during the entire evening,


and Charles loved the food and the live-band entertainment.


After dinner, Grammy and Grandpa had a little too much fun cutting their anniversary cake.


Wedding day memories relived!


And a LONG list of family members, all because two people fell in love...

Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad! We love you very much...

"The best things in life are nearest: breath in your nostrils,


light in your eyes,


flowers at your feet,


duties at your hand,


the path of right just before you.


Do not grasp at the stars, but do life's plain common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life." ---Robert Louis Stevenson
