My older brother John, Cindy's father, very layed-back, was not one to show much emotion, but I happened to stop at his and his wife Helen's home the morning after Cindy was born. John, just back from the hospital, was absolutely beside himself. He could not stop expressing amazement at how perfect she was, at what a miracle her birth was, and how the world was entirely different now. I'd not seen him so excited about anything prior to this.
Having known her now for 52 years I've seen time and again that his excitement was entirely justified.
