Best Birthday Party Ever

The living room is quiet at last and Charlotte has gone to bed, exhausted from all her efforts to make my birthday party the unforgettable event that it was.  I don’t have anything profound to say, I just want to record my thoughts from the day so that I can relive it whenever I need a reminder of how precious friends are.

We had friends from St. Frances Cabrini, Immaculate Conception, the Disciple program we just completed, our Bible study, our Rosary group, Kiwanis, Marriage Encounter and Michigan. Most of them were in more than one category. And it was a collection of the most warm-hearted and congenial people I have ever had the honor of knowing.

I just want to say “thanks” to all who came and to those who wanted to come but couldn’t. You all mean so very much to me and your love and support come at a time when I need all I can get, which actually is true at any time.

    It was indeed the best birthday party ever Steve. Charlotte pulled out all the stops. A fascinating group of friends you two have gathered here in AZ, so fun, so interesting, and so many caring about you. Thank you so much for allowing me to be there, I had such a good time and it was so good to see you centered in that outpouring of caring. All my best wishes for a successful trip and as always, vaya con Dios
