Sorry, can't help but mention for the millionth time,

Her name is Mary. She lost her husband of 72 years, Joseph. Early on to Covid because trump didn't warn anyone.

(17,126 posts)A Very Happy Healthy Safe Birthday! 🎉🎈 🎂

This past Saturday I was walking back home. There were late comers in cars to the Yankee's game on the streets.

As I was walking by on a block by the back of the big garage on River Ave besides the car noise - I thought I heard something else.

As I cleared the garage to cross the street, where there an open lot before regular apartment buildings I heard it

again.

It was **Yankee Fans cheering in The Stadium** bc The Yanks had hit one of the 4 home runs in the First Inning

of that game! 😄 👍

So I send that Big Cheer your way for your B-Day!

(105,587 posts)but I can't help but feel sorry for myself just hearing your fortunate story. I lost both parents decades ago and would give anything to be able to ask them the questions and just spend time with them that I never got to do in all those years trying to get through my many years of school.

Treasure her and every day with her as I know you do. Happy Birthday to Mom!
