This is my lovely friend Rose. We were celebrating her 91st birthday in Santa Barbara. I met Rose a few years ago and she holds a special place in my heart.
Marv and I went to spend the day with the Bolks family a few weeks ago. Going to dinner with the whole crew is always an adventure. This is Maria's sister Nicholette and below is Rich and Maria.
It's tough to get my mother to smile but here she is on her birthday and she looks pretty happy!
Ruth is my mom's best friend and has been part of my life as long as I can remember. Her daughter Kathy is Mark's Godmother.
