At the end of the party, she stood up and thanked everyone for coming. She told everyone how lucky she felt to have such a wonderful family and good friends. She surprised all of by doing this, but since she was recently diagnosed with Alzheimers, I think she has things to say and wants to let people know before the dimentia gets too bad. I took a picture of her with the granddaughters. We really missed Jodi and Emily not being there, but they had tickets to a hockey game in Philadelphia. Mom has 7 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren with 2 on the way.
