With sincere thanks
To the editor:
On May 8, a huge celebration was given to me by my sons and daughters, as it was my birthday as well as Mother’s Day. They invited the whole community to share with me that grand day.
Words do not exist to adequately express my appreciation to all who came to the party, to all who sent me cards via the U.S. Postal Service, and for the gifts. It was a most joyous occasion, deeply appreciated, and one which will remain in my memory bank for, I hope, many more years to come.
Thank you, all, for your heartfelt expressions of congratulating me for having lived for so many years. What is my secret for my long life? I told The Grim Reaper to “go fly a kite!”
