ELVIRA PAETKAU Happy Birthday to the best and sweetest mother of them all. We're serious about this, and challenge anyone to a Battle of the Best Mothers. You've been an incredible role model for us in every way. Not the least of which is that you're kind, thoughtful, inquisitive, and funny. We're fortunate folks. Have the happiest of birthdays. With all our love, Christopher, Cristiana, and Carlyle.
