Vivi Sue, have a big old piece of cake with lots of frosting roses on top, and wash it all down with a margarita! We're celebrating with you in spirit.
And a farewell and rest in peace to my wonderful father-in-law, who passed away two days ago at the age of 90. He was a gentle, dignified, erudite man who loved his family fiercely in his own quiet way and thoroughly enjoyed life. I am so happy to have known him.
He also enjoyed a good toast, both the "Cheers" sort and the bread sort. So "Cheers," Scotty...you will be missed by so many.
