Grahame's 80th birthday

What a wonderful day it was! The HUGE thing that happened was the arrival of Grahame's sister, Kathryne (sp?), from New Zealand this morning. The entire family, except Grahame, knew she was coming and it was a great and wonderful surprise for him.

Most of the in-laws were there along with several of Grahame's grandchildren and great-granchildren. Absolutely wonderful visit with everyone. We were there for a Skype visit with his niece, Helen, but didn't stay for the visit with his son, Murray (both in New Zealand).

Here is Grahame with his gift from me:

  4. Great job Maureen. I'm sure he'll cherish it. Not just because of the obvious hard work and talent that went into it but also because of all the love that's built in as well. - Marilyn D.
