80: Mama, It was a privilege and a pleasure to be able to celebrate your 90th birthday with you at Lyford Cay. You definitely make 90 seem like the new 70! It has been a long time since we have looked back at pictures through the years,and doing so brought many fun, happy, sad and poignant memories. It also made us realize just how much you have been with our families for births, baptisms, graduations, debuts, birthdays, weddings etc. etc. We are all most grateful and appreciative for the wonderful memories and your amazing support and presence. As Chi Chi said when interviewed in conjunction with her 102nd birthday,"you really should just pick your parents first." We are absolutely convinced that we did a great job doing that! With much love, Bebe, Debbie and Janet
