HAPPY BIRTHDAY "ROSSICA!"

Happy Birthday Ross!
My twin brother and I turn 25 today! Can't you tell we're twins from our pictures? Our family, at times, referred to us as "Rossica." The obvious merge of Ross and Jessica! :)
Ross, can you believe we are officially 25 years old! WOW! I have said for many years, "I was too afraid to come to earth alone so you volunteered to come with me." I am so grateful that you did! You have always been a strength and a support to me. I miss our birthday mornings. I woke up early and played my "Happy Birthday to Jessica" tape (rap version...go 90's!), and then we would each open our presents one at a time. (Except for the year mom let you open yours ten minutes early...because you were born ten minutes before me!) We would eat our yummy hot breakfast and then both have our own cakes to share with the family. You always had mint chocolate chip ice cream cake and I always had angel food cake with strawberries and whipped cream. Delicious! My mouth waters when I think of it! We have so many wonderful memories and I look forward to making our next 25 years even better than the first 25! Thank you for being who you are, and for being my longest running best friend. (I don't think anyone will ever top it....they can't.......we've always been together!) Rossy Possy....we have officially grown up! I love you so much! I hope you have an amazing birthday. Just know you are with me today. I am thinking of you and wishing we were playing together!
