Happy Birthday To Stephanie!
My Beautiful Sister!
Ryan Hart Soliwoda
So it is 1991,
My parents split up!
Not a happy time as I did not know of it
till I woke up one day and was told we were
moving and found out the rest later.
My Mom loved my Dad so much.
Sometimes things change.
But she still thinks the world of him.
Things just changed was all.
I should also mention before
I go on what a
nice friendship you had with my Dad.
He was awesome wasn’t he?
But, back in ’91,
My Mom finds a new guy.
A little tough for a while but things
got better and progressed.
Always one constant in this new family
set up besides my Mom, Bonnie and Sister Rochelle.
That was you!
I had a little crush on you when we first met and
you always reminded me what a handsome guy I am.
To this day, whenever I mention I
wanna meet my soul-mate.
You always say,
“Sweetie, you don’t need a girlfriend,
you can just marry me!”
Always reminding me you love me by doing that!
We even like some of the same tv shows.
The Girls Next Store.
All the WWE Divas Shows.
Then, you find your mate.
Mr. Howard Cusick.
A cool dude!
How can anybody not like Howard?
He is awesome!
Things get real good from there.
We get closer as adults.
You always show me the same
love and compassion.
…and for just a second,
I do like your friend Mindy.
She is also gorgeous!
When you tried to set us up in the 90s I
was too young and too shy!
Mindy is cool, I miss her!
Anyways, things came about to
another wonderful surprise.
Rochelle becomes pregnant with Kendra in 2006,
An hour later, we learn you are too!
Kendra and Rae Lynn are born!
First thing I do?
On my break from the West
Marine Boat Store
where I was working
I go to Aldo’s Pizza in the shopping
center for lunch.
Aldo, and his staff were like a family to me!
We go waaay back!
So, I show them the girl’s baby photos.
Little do I know, Diane, who
worked there at the time
was the sister of Uncle Joe Steigerwald.
She was the first person to see the photos!
Besides my Dad!
What are the odds?!
I had no idea when I showed her the
photos that we were related.
Then, in 2013, Ryan John,
my Nephew who
is named after me was born.
At this point, My Father, John, had passed away.
So, I am living at Mom’s house at this point.
Three great kids!
Kendra, being our sister Rochelle’s Daughter.
Ryan and Rae Lynn being your kids.
For those reading this poem a
and may be confused.
I knew from my friends at the
gym who have kids how much
women appreciate it when
the kids to let you gals take
a well deserved nap once in a while!
So what do I do?
Spoil all three of them!
As long as Mommy and Daddie and Bube
and Papu say it is okay, I do it!
DUCK! DUCK GOOSE!
SUSHI CAT on the internet.
You name it, we did it!
You and Mom and Rochelle remind me of
what a great Son, Brother and Uncle I am.
But July 6th is about YOU!
Happy Birthday Stephanie
I Love You!
Your Loving Brother,
Ryan Hart Soliwoda
