It was, as I have said, a fine autumnal day; the sky was clear and serene, and nature wore that rich and golden livery which we always associate with the idea of abundance. The forests had put on their sober brown and yellow, while some trees of the tenderer kind had been nipped by the frosts into brilliant dyes of orange, purple, and scarlet.... As Ichabod jogged slowly on his way, his eye... ranged with delight over the treasures of jolly autumn. ~Washington Irving, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"

Happy 90th Birthday Mom
You were always feeding someone..., And holding someone's hand...
And what a beauty!
We were so glad that you decided to get married and have children...., and that you had such good "mommy" skills. We are forever grateful for the patience, the listen and setting an example of what a person with a good heart can do under, sometimes, difficult circumstances. We are the beneficiaries of your goodness and the recipients of you unconditional love. Thank you.
We send you our love and best wishes for a very happy 90th birthday.With Love, your daughters, Connie & Lisa.
