Some of our dearest friends, Jack & Mary (below) celebrate their birthdays the same day, January 15th.
Last night 41 of their friends gathered with them, at a fancy Italian Restaurant, to celebrate this occasion
Here are the happy birthday couple.
Here is another shot of "Handsome Jack".
This is one shot of the group. The man in the white and woman next to him are two of our dear friends, Ron & Doty. Next to Doty is Mickey's empty chair (he was the photographer!) and in the shadows is another dear, close friend Jim. You'll see his wife in the next picture sitting across from Jim.
Here are our good friends of 33 years, who you've heard me talk about often and who traveled some with us in our RV days, Don & Barbara, then yours truly, and next to me, Karen, Jim's wife.
This is a shot of another wing of the table. We have met most of these people but they are not close, intimate friends.
It was a wonderful evening of honoring and celebrating the life of two marvelous Christian friends. Jack & Mary walk their talk and the fact that 41 people turned out to share this occasion with them speaks volumes. They are living examples of the Love and Kindness of their Lord and Savior, Jesus!!!
Mary is the one who gave Aric Mr. Ted T. Bear. You can read about it here.
