As you win that proves there's a god and I'll go back to church. Okay. You you wouldn't. Think I'm Kathleen anymore I'm just mostly guilty. Well you. Are well built calculated on the night is that interest thing. It is that what god gave to keep it in the lying. He gave us all of its bouncy and then guilt.

And they be doing soccer camps in soccer away games and try to doubled in two. Vacations and his mom wanted to catalog so she suddenly put them by some suit situation let the old style film cameras angle smile. And Hayward you goofing around or whatever and he would then tee it said no smile really aggressive within. And then. He was trying to smile but it would come out super goofy and somehow this and so many times. As they we didn't realize for years. The reason let's win the pictures he's really trying to smile he and a smile. If you ask him to. Oh my yeah. I thought my god what it children's book the little boy who couldn't. My L. What how was it a muscle thing or just. 88 personality thing where. Eighty literally couldn't do it if you if you ask him on the next. I asked him right now it looks like he had a stroke and a medium not trying to halt the one side goes out and it's in his eyes can't smile it doesn't all smile together. It just it really is because asthma yelled at him so many times. Is that right. Or the country and that that that we combined with vacation time in yellows and between games we do different sites at the moment pictures from Harry's.
