He interrupts
the correcting
of examinations
to mark
his daughter's
first day at home
He has learned
without a professor
how to hold
this fragility
Under her head
his hand
and next
to his heart
by a father's
she takes
top honors
Brent David Kattau was born on February 28, 1977 at 6:55 p.m. He weighed 6 pounds 14 oz and was 20 1/2 inches long.

"My how they've grown!!!"
Kendra and Brent have grown into wonderful adults. They have provided Tom and me with moments of
great joy
boundless love.
Until we became parents, we had no idea what
really meant.
Our children taught us about love.
We are so blessed.
Happy Birthday to Kendra and Brent!
