Happy Birthday Edythe Johnston

from your family

A good time was had by all, at the party for Edythe's 93rd birthday. It was held at the clubhouse in her apartment complex in Sarasota. Everyone contributed food and help with setting up, serving, and cleaning up. Here are the family members, not in any particular order.

Edythe was surprised at the cake, but enjoyed blowing out the candles and sharing it with everyone who came.
Barbara Mitchell, hostess for the party, warned everyone that she would be watching the Buccaneer football game, and she was a woman of her word. Look how excited she got at just a three-point field goal!
If I have misspelled anyone's name, or misrepresented a family relationship, please let me know so I can fix it. Sharon Walls sent me the pictures that she and Glen took -- thanks Sharon! They are on the next page.
