I want to personally wish the Corwin family a big congratulations on the birth of their third daughter. Awesome mom, Jasmine Corwin, informed me that baby Elsie Marie Corwin arrived early on May 18. She will now join in the Corwin family celebrations of May birthdays. Welcome to the world, Elsie Marie, and congratulations to the entire Corwin family. God bless you.

I recently heard from one of my favorite local contacts — Jasmine Corwin. Jasmine and her girls would like to wish husband and Dad, Blake, a very happy 31st birthday Saturday, May 21. Mom and Dad also wish a very happy birthday to their smart and sassy daughter Lila, who will turn 4 on May 31. As a special gift to Blake and Lila, a new baby girl is due to be born on the 25th. Their little family is growing in leaps and bounds. Happy birthday and congratulations to all of you!
