I feel blessed
To the Editor:
Thank you to so many of you for being a part of making my birthday so special. It's been an amazing life...in my 95 trips "around the sun."
Since 1925, in those many years before interstate highways, international airports, and social security, before taxes, TV, cell phones and frozen peas, I've seen a lot of things change in how we live.
Whether it's how large our families tend to be, how we travel, how we dress, how much we have, what we eat, how we keep in touch with each other, what jobs there are today that weren't even imagined nearly 100 years ago and so much more.
I think I was born into a great time in history.
And choosing Petersburg was one of the most important and influential decisions of my life. I'm grateful for the chances I've had to stay busy here in so many ways, as part of an amazing community, and feel fortunate for all the friends I've met.
It's been a good life. I feel blessed. Thank you for celebrating with me.
