Nine years ago today, we spent an impatient, exhausting day at the hospital. At 8:52pm, Reese M. Arconati was born to the world. I have been proud of every single moment and achievement since then.
Happy Birthday Reese Monster!
Lisa just sent this email.
As you may know, Lucas’ birthday is this Saturday (April 26). In an effort to remember him and commemorate his birthday we are having a small gathering at the cemetery. We will be releasing balloons and would like to attach any special messages you might like to say to, about or for Lucas. I know some of you won’t be able to join us but I thought you might like to send along your message as well. For those of you who will be with us that afternoon we will be meeting at the cemetery at 1:30pm and you’ll be able to bring your message then. If you want to send a message please write one out and send it to either myself or to Jimmy (also include message from the cousins Micah, Abby, Lily and Isaiah if you want to). Thank you all in advance for your messages and support. Lucas will surely love them!
Love ya all
PS: Please make sure your messages can fit onto a 3X5 note card.
I’m working on what to put on my card for the balloon. I also have a lot of stuff collected from over the last few months that I want to share and I’ll add a post when it is available.
As of today the owner and author of this website, James A. Arconati, is 32-years-old. Many thanks to my parents and my whole family for everything.
Happy Anniversary to Lisa and Jim Arconati. They have been married legally since December of 1998. However, they celebrate their wedding on January 24th every year since that was when their marriage was blessed at Ferguson Christian Church on January 24th, 2004. They count this as their 9th anniversary.
Happy 60th Birthday!! I wanted to post a recent picture of my mom, but almost all pictures I have of her include one or more of the grandkids. Since we have a long-standing policy of not posting these in public, I had to dig back to this old photo from 1997.
It’s not the best picture of any of us, but it reminds me of summer fun with my mom from those years. She’s always loved Six Flags for as long as I can remember. Anyway, Happy Birthday Mom! The last one to get to the roller-coaster is buying lunch.
