Huffman Lord light 40 beautiful candles, And sing happy birthday for me. His 11th birthday in heaven, And I wonder what his wish will be. Tell him that I love him and miss him, And I can’t wait to see his smile. Place a kiss upon his cheek, And hold him for a while. Happy 40th birthday, Chris! Love, your family
