Or friend David texted us weeks ago, asking that my dear wife Karen and I reserve Sunday afternoon for a surprise party to honor his wife and our friend Theresa.
She was celebrating a round-number birthday.
They did it up right.
The decorations at her cousin Ed’s banquet room off Hiawatha Boulevard were perfect.
Her sister, Joy, made sure everybody was aware of Theresa’s life at every stage.
Joy whipped up plenty of great food as well, and created special photo opportunities for all.
We fell for all of it.
My favorite photo with my iPhone 8 was catching David, Theresa and daughter Althea. Lovely!
Here’s to so many more.
