Letter to the editor: Centenarian grateful to all

Many thanks to all who came to help me celebrate my 100th birthday. It was great seeing everyone. Many thanks for all of the flowers, cards, gifts, birthday wishes and donations to the Shrine Children’s Hospital in my name. 

Many thanks to the American Legion for the use of their hall and for setting up tables and chairs for us. And especially, many, many thanks to my family for all of the planning and work of creating such a special day.

Editor’s note: The Independent normally runs notes of personal thanks as paid advertisements; if we published a thank you letter every time one person was grateful to another person or group of people we would not have any room for news stories. We make an exception here because of the milestone event that is truly out of the ordinary.
