Happy Birthday Mom

The first year after a loved one dies is filled with milestones, and today is another one of those for us as Mom would have been 73 today. We had the opportunity Friday night to celebrate in good fashion as we participated in the American Cancer Society “Walk for Life”. Many people in town formed groups to raise money, and then walked through the night to honor the memory of those who lost the fight and those who are in the middle of the fight, to raise awareness, and to raise funds for research. Over $52,000 was raised at the Delta event.

The track was lined with over 500 luminaries, which allowed personal expression. I suspect one day I will hear about the spelling mistake on one of ours, but I know she understands the message is from the heart :) Happy Birthday Mom!

Hi Bill, I think that every time we mention or think about those we've loved who have died, we give them great honor. Annie
