Happy 93rd Birthday Mom !

Mom was born in 1916. My Dad in 1913.

There are three boys in the family. I'm the "middle son."

I have written about my Dad. He was a carpenter and had his own woodworking shop. He died 10 years ago.

Mom was a homemaker until the last son graduated from high school then she went to school.

She became a nurse. A LPN. She worked for 25 years at St. Francis Hospital. She retired 30 years ago.

We had a nice party for her 90th at her church, Divine Redeemer Catholic church in Hanahan.

For the 91st, friends and family came here to the house and overflowed from the large kitchen into every room. Some were out on the patio.

Last year's party was at Sandpiper Assisted Living in Mt. Pleasant. A very large crowd gathered on its outdoor deck and there were three cakes.

This year's celebration will also be at Sandpiper but in the Nursing Center. Mom suffered a stroke last year so we won't have a crowd this time. Just family.

Happy birthday. We love you.
