Special thank you

On April 12 it was my husband William Pearse’s 90th birthday. Our family hoped that people would send him cards to help him celebrate. You sure did that. He received 55 cards. William would like to thank each and every one of you for the wonderful cards he received. We put them all up on the wall at Windward Gardens so he could see them. A special one was from a lady who had hand painted her card and it was special because her birthday was the same day and she was a year younger. Again thank you very much.
