Family Joy

Dad B-dayYesterday was a day of celebration in the Gardner family: my father’s 90th birthday party.

We had the whole family in, people from his church choir, a couple of guys that he had worked with at Panasonic just prior to retirement, his 93-year old sister and her 2 daughters, my 2 best friends and their wives, our realtor for life (Moe Moghadam) and more. The big surprise for my dad was tracking down a doctor who has supported our entire family and has now retired.

Thanks to all who attended and made this such a special celebration–we are most grateful.

My father lost my mother in April 2007. He lives alone and still drives. When he injured himself just prior to a ballroom dancing competition a few years ago, I took him to my chiropractor. As she was taking his medical history, he told her, “I don’t want to die in front of a TV set.” He has built a very active life for himself.

Happy Birthday, Dad! Let’s do this again in another 10 years.

Thought for the week:
