Aunt Grace

Happy 95th Birthday tomorrow to Aunt Grace. The family had a nice pot luck dinner at 1 and a party for friends at 3. Myrna, your flowers were beautiful. I heard Grace telling someone they were from Myrna and Paulette. Tammie, Grace told me she got your card.

Although she is getting a little forgetful (aren't we all?) she still gets around with the help of a cane or walker. She can get herself up and dressed every day. She says she doesn't play bridge much anymore because she has no one to play with. I guess she has outlived all her card-playing friends.

Had a nice visit with cousins, Wanda, Connie, Linda, Irene and Sharon. They all kept rotating in and out around our table. Also met Irene's sister from out east. She is a big Red Sox fan and loves to golf.

Grace's first great great grandchild was also present. He is 5 months old.

It was a great party and I'm glad I spent the 4 or 5 hours making the drive.
