    Yesterday was a very hard and emotional day, but we did it. The flowers, pictures, and mementos were all done so fantasctically awesome.

    My dad will be 80 years old in a couple of months. Does anyone have any ideas on what my family can do to celebrate? My mom has passed away and my dad has remarried. I did contact the White House (they will send a birthday card to anyone 80 years and older). Thanks for any suggestions.
