Celebrating Florence


It isn’t every day that your half-sister turns 100. It’s especially special when you’ve only known her since she was 82.

That’s why Sunday, on Florence’s birthday, I was happy to host her centennial party. Everyone there (except for her great-grandchildren, ages three and five) have known her far longer than I have.

The party theme was “Queen for a Day.” Her “jeweled" crown was created by our across-the-street neighbor’s seven-year-old who also supplied a boa and a cape. Cards and calls came from all across the country.

Florence doesn’t hear too well, and she uses a walker. She has endured the loss of a son and a grandson. Yet her sense of humor is in excellent working condition and people still want to be with her. She loved being the center of attention.
