You are such a special and talented person. It has been a great blessing to me, my family, and those I have traveled with to Homer over the years to know you and watch you grow up.
Your life shines as a testimony of God's love and grace. I am very proud of you and I cannot wait to see what God has in store for you in the years to come.

RIA!!!! I am SO PROUD of you! I will never forget the Little Ria I knew when living with the Hueper Family! The little Ria that was quiet but was able to fill the room with laughter and joy! I love you very much, and I am proud to say you are my little sister! It is exciting to watch you grow up and become something unique and special. You have so much to offer your family, friends, the people of the world and most importantly Yah! Also......your wild rice soup is pretty amazing...not gonna lie...I kind of miss it..like everyday. I am sorry I wont be able to make it your celebration, but I this summer I will make a trip down and I will make sure I make up for that lack of presence! I am so proud of you, AND I LOVE YOU!!
your big bro always,
Dr. and Mrs. Gerald Aardsma
Dear Ria, You don't know us, but we knew your parents years ago before they were even married. Your mother was the secretary where Dr. Aardsma worked and she was famous for zinging rubber bands at the staff! :) Congratulations on this special day of committment to the Lord. "Only one life, t'will soon be past, only what is done for Christ will last." Keep on for Jesus! Love and prayers, Helen and Gerald Aardsma

Happy birthday, what an awesome website! I know you don't see our side of the family much, but I have been thinking of you and missing seeing you grow up! Sounds like you have been doing a pretty good job so far, can't wait to hear about the great things you do with your bday gifts! xoxo
