Happy birthday from the whole family
I would like to wish happy birthday to my husband, James Gainey, who is currently in Iraq. His birthday is Dec. 8th. This will be our first time apart on his birthday and the holidays. We have five kids together. Courtney, Parish, Domonquie, Jada, and Ja'Nia all say happy birthday and that they love and miss him. Mommy loves him too.
