Happy Birthday, Bob!
August 22, 2003
We spent last evening celebrating the 90th birthday of the father of one of our friends. It's amazing to talk with someone who has seen the world change so much over the years - someone who remembers when traffic consisted mostly of horses & buggies, who remembers the troops coming home from World War I, who has seen the administration of 16 different presidents. He was married just shy of 50 years and for the majority of his adult life worked in the same job running an ice cream plant. (Any job where you buy sugar by the boxcar is great in my book!)
Robert Bottomley is a great man to know and talk with and we wish him many more good years!
