Today would have been my Nana’s (Alba Ross) 101st birthday. It seems strange that today we won’t be standing around the kitchen table singing Happy Birthday as she stood by the cake mouthing the words as we sang. She had one hundred birthdays and a long and full life. Last year, to the day – about 100 family members and friends gathered at the local Masonic Hall to celebrate her 100th Birthday. She was like a queen that day. She was always in her glory surrounded by friends and family. I hope today, she is surrounded by her friends and family who went before her celebrating her life, as we do today. Happy Birthday, Nana!

  1. Happy birthday, Nana!! She was a vibrant, vivacious woman full of love and life. I am sure she is surrounded by family and friends watching over all of you. Birthdays, Thanksgiving and Christmas are tough when someone you love is no longer here with you. I know how hard that is. She loved you, Deb and always spoke of you with pride.
