Mom Beyer's 90th Birthday Bash!

On Sunday, August 24th we attended our friend Mom Jill Beyer's surprise 90th birthday party at a local restaurant. It was a surprise hosted by her (adult) children: Jim, Lisa, Ralph and Nancy. I (Rob) have known Jim and his family for over 20 years and my mom LOVED spending time with Jill whenever she visited.

The beautiful cake 
  It was great to see everyone and Jill looked outstanding. I know that my mom was there in spirit, because she loved to laugh with Jill whenever they were together (they had several shopping experiences over the years).

  The restaurant was wonderful and it was a catered event with cake, too!  What a wonderful tribute to an amazing woman who raised 4 amazing kids!

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
