Thank you so much to all of our friends who came out to celebrate last Tuesday! Mama Alta Grace McCullough had a wonderful 75th birthday! It was so nice to store up so many hugs to take back to the desert with us and Yahvi and I loved jamming with all of you. I am filled with love and joy from each and every one of you. Thank you to Mark, Jack, Nathaniel, Marge, Peggy, Maura, and Jim for the beautiful concert. You are all so good to my beautiful mama and I am forever grateful. I’ve been storing up my tears and I was able to let some of them out last week. I love you very much.
As I think of our time together last week, I am reminded of this song I learned from my friends, The Young Stracke All-Stars:
And it’s from the old I travel to the new; keep me traveling along with you!
Mama Grace says: Dear Chicago friends. Thank you for all the birthday greetings, warm hugs, lively cards and letters, beautiful bouquets, delicious chocolates, yummy gelato and gorgeous dried Fall leaves. I’m still enjoying them all.
Thanks to Mark and Jack for the songs and consideration of my 75th birthday; and to Marge, “The Bums” Peggy and Maura, and Maria, and Jim for their special touch.
I’m taking you all to NM with me in my heart because I don’t think I’ll find another group that touches me like you all do.
Until next time!
The McCardos 🙂
