Nicholas was born two weeks early and exactly two weeks before Mommy and Daddy`s 12th wedding anniversary. He is an anniversary gift from God that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. Proud Grandparents are Alt and Marg Chafe and Cyril and Isabel Turner. Great Grandmother Agnes Madden. Nicholas would like to thank all of the people who helped to bring him into the world. He would especially like to thank Mommy who, without her never-ending love and her enormous effort over the past nine months, he would not have had the chance to meet all of the wonderful people in his life.
