Re: “An Accomplisment of Century,” Aug. 2 edition.
The article was beautiful and Aunt Esther was so touched. Her birthday party was something I’ll never forget. The day started with her first Skype experience with her 80-90 year old cousins on the east coast. “This machine is magical.”
Then my brother in law had his friend and brother marine present certificates of appreciation from the Marine Corp as well as a card from the White House.
We gave a laminated copy of the article to her at our family party and read it aloud to her as her eyes teared.
Thank you for helping to make this important milestone so special. It was so wonderful to hear that people had read it before I had even seen it!
