 NOTES : This is a Mark Family Birthday tradition.  With only the candles
 lit, we gather around the kitchen table and sing a discordant round of
 “Happy Birthday”.  Somebody always says, “Sing it again.”  Uncle Kenny’s
 voice is always the loudest--and most out of tune.  Sorry, Uncle Ken. 
 You know I love you dearly.  You know you're my favorite.  But you CAN'T
 carry a tune.
