From Diana




Last year for Mom's 90th we had a little suprise party and grilled outside. This year we just brought a cake to her Assisted Living Apartment on September 1st. It was a big marble cake - everyone said it was way too big - but since I got to take home the leftovers I thought it was just right.
My husband Bill and I were there - as well as Carol, and 2 of my 3 kids were there. (Jon and Kris). Several of mom's friends from St. Benedicts also stopped in for cake and ice cream.
The next day - we drove about 30 miles to watch my daughter in law in a horse show. She does 'Eventing' which is Dressage, stadium jumping and cross country. We went to watch stadium jumping and mom was very willing to give each and every rider - some tips on what they should do better. She really enjoyed herself.

The picture of Maria is so nice to see. I don't think I've seen her since many years ago at Old Forge. Used to love going up there to visit. Always felt welcome and the buttermilk pancakes Uncle Arnon made would rival Grandpa's any day. Maria was so pretty and full of life. I just loved her. Hope she's hanging in there.
