Happy birthday Bob, your birthday is the same as my favorite uncle Clayton Barrett.

My uncle Clayton share your birthday. I wish you a long and productive life that uncle Clayton experienced. He was 96 and went to sleep one night and didn’t wake up the next morning. He was a wonderful person. Your birthday Is very special.
