Velma Augusta Turns 95

Our Mom was born on August 25th, 1917. She will be 95 today. She was married to our Dad, George Brainerd, for 57 years. She thinks time stopped for him at 86 and that he will not recognize her when she goes to join him. She is a gentle and occasionally stubborn matriarch with a giant family (8 children, 13 grandchildren, 29 great grandchildren) who still lives in our childhood home with my sister, still does her own laundry and can still cook a delicious meal if she has to. We are very fortunate to enjoy our mom, who has also been a great friend, for so long.

All of your children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, other family members, and friends wish you a

Very Happy Birthday!
