Barbara and I conspired with Chris and Ellen to make this a surprise party.

We told Mary we were taking her to a luncheon with the 'Old Folks'

but didn't tell her about the rest of the family gathering for her birthday.



She was suspicious when we drove to West Sacramento near Angela's home.

Still, she didn't know who was coming. She didn't expect to see

her son, Tom, or her grandson, Reed, until later in the summer.

It was a great reunion for everyone.










Thanks for the Memories


We stayed in touch with Grandma Mary

until she passed away on July 21, 2017, at the age of 95.

She remains a very special Grandma in our hearts.
