Daughter Sherry and her siblings cooked up the best birthday surprise for their parents 80th birthdays. They reserved their rooms at Perry’s Ocean Edge Resort www.perrysoceanedge.com, just like they frequently do in the summer, as a little birthday time for the parents. So Sherry’s family and the parents were sitting outside their room enjoying the view when along come one brother’s family here, then another and another. What a surprised Mom and Dad! And the coup de grace was when the son they hadn’t seen for two years who had been stationed in Afghanistan walked up and said, ‘Hi Pop, how’s it going?’ Dad looked up, and I’ll tell you, I wasn’t there, but it brought tears to my eyes just hearing the story related. What better gift could you give parents?
A second family reunion was just as much a surprise. The Casagrande family celebrated their mom’s 80th also, and the girlfriends were in on it. Son Jerry and his family planned the celebration at the Hilton www.daytonahilton.com. Meanwhile, Mom’s girlfriends on the west coast of Florida suggested it would be a great idea to go to Daytona Beach to celebrate their friend’s birthday. Imagine her surprise when her of the whole family showed up! Again, what better gift.
