I want to thank all who were as surprised me seeing on front and back pages of the Tribune Sept. 12.

My kids pulled this on me. I have received 80 cards with notes and gifts – another surprise only two cards duplicated. After reading the article about all I’ve been a part of – I felt tired. My son Jimmy on my birthday set up a Zoom conference for two hours with 20 family relations, some as far away as Australia.

Sunday, Sept. 20 that evening Paul took me for the 100 anniversary celebration of my childhood church in Atheron, MO. That area held many memories of my life. During that week of my birthday I heard of saw all my immediate family and Danny drew a birthday cake picture.
