  2. 'Every gift but length of years'. The one thing Ted Kennedy ever said that made me cry.

    Sending much love to you today, dear Donna. And happy birthday, Esther Jean. Your legacy of love is intact, dear one. No need to ever fret for that!

  4. Yes, like Sarah I am smiling, nodding and wishing you a loving, peaceful day.

    P.S. my mom adored Herb Albert and had all his albums - I remember her cleaning house with their music cranked up! What a fun memory :-)

  8. What a lovely tribute. And the way you live your life each day, loving your family and being The Huge, that is the loveliest of tributes. Wouldn't Esther Jean just love your blog?

    Love to you, Donna Elsie.

    Always,

    We love Herb Alpert at our house…he was part of our college years. We have five albums total in our combined collection, but not the Whipped Cream one. The Spanish Flea brought back memories. Your mom must have been such a marvel. Is it any wonder that you have a dancing family? Life is made up of memories and yours are extra sweet. love and prayers, jep
