Baby Girl Note




Harold Howie G George posted this on Facebook 5/25/2016. It is from his daughter, who he affectionately calls, "BabyGirl." He said:

"After a really crappy day at work, I come out to my car and find this note. It made me smile from ear to ear! THX BabyGirl!!"

Thanks to Howie for letting us share! And thanks to his daughter for using real handwriting to convey a message!

Thank you
